Pumpkin Votive Light
Cute and scary all at the same time, this pumpkin houses an LED votive candle to brighten up your table, a bathroom vanity, or any place in your home that needs a little spookiness. With or without light, this project bursts with Halloween spirit. The clay pumpkin is formed over a glass votive holder. After baking in your kitchen oven, the glass is removed and the clay is coated with glitter. Sitting on a bed of raffia, this easy project is a quick and fun way to decorate for the holiday.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my Sculpey machine the thickest setting is 1, the thinnest is 9.
Before you begin, condition each clay color. All cutting should be done on wax paper which will allow you to easily rotate the work when necessary.
step 9 - Gently press dental floss vertically across the clay to create indents in the pumpkin skin. Using too much pressure may cut through the clay.
step 10 - Bake the pumpkin in a 275 degrees oven on a foil lined baking sheet for 30 minutes. Allow the clay to cool.
