Pumpkin Candle Holder Upcycles

I love thrift stores & garage sales, and I love solar lights and things that light up (you’ll probably hear me say this a lot)!  On one of my trips, I bought 2 candle holders – both are fall pumpkin shaped. I turned one into a solar holder and the other incorporates a recycled bottle and lights…

Who doesn’t love a good deal???  I found both of these pumpkin candle holders at a thrift stores.

I’ll start with the solar pumpkin… I bought a solar light from Big Lots that matched the brass decor of the pumpkin.

I pulled the light off the stem.

I had a glass vase that fit into the pumpkin, but you could find one of these at Dollar Tree.

I set the solar light on top of the vase.

I put the vase and solar light inside the pumpkin and I was done!

You could definitely leave this up all fall. I will probably leave mine up all year.

Onto the second candle holder re-purposed a different way…

I took an empty bottle and cleaned off the label.

I stuffed a strand of 20 lights I got from Dollar Tree into the bottle.

I set the bottle into the pumpkin candle holder where the candle would go and created a stem.

Plugged in the lights and that was it.

Again, a great decoration for out on your porch all fall, and I’ll leave mine up all year!
