Hey dreamers! I am back with my second spooky tutorial for this glorious month. I cannot believe it more than halfway over, I feel like the time is going way to quick! Good thing today’s project only takes about 10-15 minutes not including drying time.

Are pumpkins not the most beautiful symbol of autumn and Halloween? I’ve never been a huge pumpkin spice coffee fan, but I do wait diligently each year for pumpkin flavored bagels, doughnuts, and muffins not to mention the holy grail of desserts, pumpkin pie. Carving a pumpkin is a tradition I have happily kept alive since childhood but I have not had a chance to indulge this year yet, so here’s what I made in the meantime.

Step 1: Pour more mod podge sheers into your glass than you think you’ll need.  Swirl the glass around until all of the inside is covered. Then set upside down and let dry. You may want to collect the excess mod podge that pours out of your candle holder while it dries.

Step 2: When your glass is all done drying it should be transparent/opaque. Mine dried after about 20ish hours.

Draw a jack-o’-lantern face of your choosing onto your glass with puffy paint. Let that dry, toss in a candle and you’re done!

This project costs about $5 per holder if you factor in all the supplies plus the fact that one bottle of mod podge can make two candle holders a piece. Not bad right? It can’t replace actual pumpkin carving, but it is a good placeholder if, like me, you haven’t made your way to the pumpkin patch yet this year. What is your favorite thing to do during this time of year? I have so many, but carving jack-o’-lanterns has to be in my top 5.
