I can't resist mini pumpkins in the fall, but I'm always unsure about what to do with them. This year, I did make pumpkin tealights and I really love them. In another tutorial, I read that I can rub cinnamon on the inside of the pumpkin and the heat from the flame will encourage a cinnamon scent to emerge. I'll try that tonight.
In the centerpiece, I included a tall pumpkin spice candle (that I already had) and then purchased two smaller apple cinnamon candles from the Dollar Store. The tray on which the candles sit is silver and I found it my local Goodwill store for only $10 (and the tray sits upon our coffee table, which I found on Craig's List for just $30). When I look at the centerpiece I'm not only happy that it's fall but I feel satisfied with my great thrifty finds this year. Thinking of next year, I sprinkled the seeds from the mini pumpkins in the woods that meet up with my backyard. Next year, I'll view orange from my kitchen windows.
