Fall Decorating: Pumpkin Candlesticks

Fall Decorating: Pumpkin Candlesticks

Recycle old home decor for your fall decorations to make these darling pumpkin candlesticks!

Welcome to another edition of Craft Lightning–Halloween style! It’s September, so about the time to start thinking about updating the house with fall decorations and Halloween. For me, I never seem to have the same decorating combo out twice and I like it like that!

What that does mean is that I have to do a lot of craft recycling. Who needs to go out and buy more stuff when you’ve got things to re-purpose? No one! These Pumpkin Candlesticks were created from pieces I found in my house already. All they really need is a paint job and a dot of hot glue, so they’re super fast to make into decor!

Pumpkin Candlestick Materials:

  • Candlestick with wide top
  • Small pumpkin
  • White chalkpaint (buy it here)

I found some old candlesticks in a closet, but a trip to the thrift store will probably produce a few that you’ll love. No need for this to be expensive!

The small pumpkins I used were already in my fall decor boxes, but this time of year the dollar stores and craft stores are brimming with fake pumpkins.

If you haven’t used chalkpaint before, it sticks to anything so it’s a good choice for plastic pumpkins.

Pumpkin Candlestick Assembly

This fall decorating couldn’t be easier. You’re pretty much just going to paint everything white. That’s right, it’s like skill level zero. You can do this!

After you’ve given your candlesticks and pumpkins a beautiful new paint job, just pop the pumpkins on top of the candlesticks. If you’re into spookier decorations, a few spiders on your candlesticks would be a great addition!

Place them in their new home for the season. I’m just starting to decorate, but I love how they work in this room!
