Pumpkin Candle Centerpiece

No centerpiece for a Thanksgiving party? Use this idea for an easy arrangement using only three ingredients: a pumpkin, a candle, and berry sprigs. Here's a fresh way to display pumpkins and candles for Thanksgiving dinner.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Snap or cut the stem off the top of the pumpkin. Placing the bottom end of the pillar candle on the top of the pumpkin, tightly trace the perimeter of the candle's bottom with a marker.
2. Using a sharp knife, cut vertically just inside the traced outline. The cut portion can then be discarded.
3. Wedge the candle securely inside. If you've cut the hole a bit too large, simply place a can or other object inside the pumpkin as a base for the candle. If necessary, keep the candle from tipping by wedging one end of a vine in between the candle and the cut edge.
4. Tuck in a few leaves and sprigs of vine around the base of the candle.

Napakaganda naman ng pumpkin candle centerpiece na ito. Eleganteng elegante ang dating. Alam mo pakikinabangan mo ang pagiging creative mo sa mga bagay bagay. Pati yung food preparation mo eh work of art. Siguro maliiit na pumpkin lang ang dapat gamitin para cute. Thanks sa magandang idea mo na ito. Than ks for the post. God bless you all always.
