Well, maybe they're not that creepy, but these candlestick ARE another fun way to use those little mini pumpkins you can pick up at the supermarket.
If you're using a wooden plaque, you'll want to paint it black for the base. Next, drill a shallow hole the same size as the dowel, and glue the dowel into hole. Poke a hole through the pumpkins and stack them onto the dowel. Carve out the top pumpkin and place a tealight into the hole.
For the vase, fill it with styrofoam, cover it with moss, and shove the dowel rod into the foam. Then stack your pumpkins the same way, with the tealight on top.
I created a little bar-top tablescape with my creepy candlesticks and a tray full of peppers, gourds, some yummy vino and a couple of glasses just waiting for me and my hubby to start the party.
Cheers to all you Halloween lovers!
