How To Shape Pumpkin Spice Candles To Look Like Real Pumpkins

It’s after August, which means it’s time to break out the fall-scented candles: cinnamon, apple, and most notably… pumpkin spice!

The pumpkin spice latte is back, so that means it’s completely appropriate for everything to smell like pumpkin spice. I don’t know about you, but I’m obsessed with the smell.


Instead of buying a pumpkin spice candle, make a pumpkin shaped pumpkin spice candle! It’s super easy to make, and works as a decoration, too!

First, you need to have a pumpkin mold. You can either buy one, or make one with mold putty. Karina Garcia explains how to make the mold using the putty and a mini pumpkin.

Once the mold is ready, you can melt some soy wax in a mason jar, along with some crayons for coloring. You can add scented wax cubes or scented oils for the smell.

Add the wax to the mold along with a wick, and place it in the freezer. Karina does this in two separate parts to make it easier.

You can also add a little bit of a brown crayon at the top to act as a stem, and that’s it, you’re done!

I’d suggest lighting these on top of some sort of dish to catch the wax. Though these smell delicious, they also can be pretty messy.

What’s your favorite fall candle scent?
