You can also make your own scrumptious pumpkin body butter that is a treat for your skin and your sense of smell! Mix some pumpkin puree, cinnamon and coconut milk and prepare yourself for a spectacular treat!

Make an awesome center piece for your dinner table by showcasing this years pumpkins in a unique way! Make your own floating pumpkin candles with little effort. Check out your local farmers market and pick up a handful of miniature pumpkins and the same number of votive candles. Use the votive candle as a stencil to trace a circle onto the top of each pumpkin and afterwards cut the circle out with a knife until the candle fits snugly inside. Complete this step for each pumpkin until you have enough the perfect amount for your water filled container. Light each candle as the pumpkins float in the water and voila a spectacular mealtime display!
