These handmade cinnamon pumpkin candles add a touch of fall to your home with votive made from scratch and a holder made from real halved pumpkin. These artisanal candles are an ideal addition to any home, table or party setting during the autumnal season.

Making candles can be quite a personalize experience allowing the user to really personalize the scent based of off their favorite aromas and notes. These candles begin with small pumpkins that are halved and emptied so that the base of the squash can be used as a holder for the homemade candle. A wick held upright by a pencil is then placed at the centre of the pumpkin that is then filled with soy wax flakes, crushed cinnamon sticks, cinnamon flavoring and coloring if you'd like to change the hue of the candle. Once the wax has dried you can remove the pencil and light the wick.
