Gourd Candleholder

I love gourds. And I love decorating with them when Fall rolls around. Here is a really simple candle holder I made (this is actually an acorn squash, but close enough). You can really use anything as long as it’s stable and it has a deep enough top so that the candle doesn’t fall through.


Here’s the gourd before.


I took a Sharpie and outlined the candle, making a circle on the top of the gourd. Then I used an exacto blade and carefully cut on that line and then made intersections in the center and just chipped away at it until it was the right shape/depth I needed.


That’s it. Easy.
