Pumpkin Votives

A big fat thank you to Martha Stewart for this awesome idea... just in time for Halloween...

For this project, you will need assorted miniature pumpkins, votives, floral cutters, and a hand-drill fitted with a 1 1/2-inch-wide paddle bit. If possible, get a second person to help: He or she can don a pair of work gloves and hold the pumpkin in place as you drill.

1. Using floral cutters, trim the stem from the pumpkin.

2. Center the paddle bit over the pumpkin, and drill about 1/2 inch deep.

3. Insert votive. The pumpkin can be stored in a cool, dry spot for up to one day.
