If you are looking for ways to deal with leftover pumpkin, this DIY project helps you make Thanksgiving themed candles out of old gourds and small sized pumpkins. From Earth911, the craft instructions result in festive and seasonal decor.

Using hollowed out leftover pumpkin, you can make waste-free and natural candles. You will need natural beeswax and lead-free wicks in addition to the mini pumpkins. After the gourd is hallowed out, you can place melted beeswax inside as well as the wick.

This project allows you to reuse your Halloween decorations while also avoiding candles made out of artificial ingredients. In addition to giving your home a seasonal look, they also make great gifts this time of year.
