The other day I made some cute pumpkin favors for my lady friends and I thought I’d share it with you since it’s such an easy fall gift to make!
These tiny candles tied in with my one-little-word for 2017…Light.
And this year, that word has proven to be quite powerful in our lives.
Like I said, this is an easy project…just a little something…
But even the tiniest flicker of light can make a huge impact.
I’m not sure I can find words to tell you how God used that one-little-word this year…but I’m going to try.
I’m not quite ready but I’m going to write about 2017 soon…
Because in 2017 our family experienced the power of light…
“The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it…”
But that’s a story for another day…for now, let’s make someone an easy fall gift…
Here’s what you need:
(Affiliate links included)
Small pumpkins – I got mine at Target but HERE are some online-
Spray paint- (If you want a different color- I kept mine as purchased)
Tea light candles – I got mine at Target but you can order HERE
Exacto Knife HERE
Remove stem and press candle into top of the pumpkin…
Use your knife to cut around indention…
Scoop out enough styrofoam to hold candle…
Push in your candle! I wrote scriptures on the bottom of each candle- the scriptures I picked had to do with …you know, Light-
We have dinner every other week at our small group and last time we ordered subs. I packed a sack “lunch” for everyone and tucked one of these pumpkin candles into all of my lady-friends brown bags! 🙂
Wouldn’t these be cute at each place setting this Thanksgiving?
Just make sure you get unscented candles if you’re burning them during dinner 🙂
~Have a light-filled day my friends~
And enjoy your moments…xo
