It's that time of year again. Witches and ghosts will soon parade the streets and arrive at your door begging for candy. So, your house better be in good shape when they do. I'm not one for faux cobwebs clogging up my doorway, but I do love walking into a house that just smells like October. I was pretty excited when I came across a Martha Stewart project for a carved pumpkin incense burner that smells like pumpkin pie, so I decided I had to share. All you'll need is a small pumpkin, a knife, an apple corer, pumpkin pie spices, cloves, and a tealight.
To learn how to make this adorable thing,
- First things first. Find a cute pumpkin that still has its stem on it, which you can use as a handle.
- Then, neatly slice off the top of the pumpkin.
- Carve out the innards of the pumpkin.
- Make polka dotted vents in the pumpkin's sides using an apple corer. Or, carve whatever shapes you like.
- Rub the spices generously onto the lid.
- Push your cloves into the lid.
- Then, set a tealight in the pumpkin base, put the lid back on, and enjoy!
