For some elegant fall decorating, try turning a small pumpkin or gourd into a candle. You scoop out the inside of the pumpkin and fill it with melted wax and a wick.
These will look great as seasonal decoration or as part of a centerpiece on a table. (Thanksgiving is coming up, you know.) Use a dried-out gourd, and they might make great Christmas gifts. You can even re-use wax from an old candle to save some money, too. [Craft]
