These stylish candle holders look so elegant, people will ask where you bought them. Leave a hole in the middle of a pumpkin to hold your candles.

You can also swap out your real candles for some wax-dipped tealights for a centerpiece that’s both eye-catching and fire-proof!

If you’re worried about wax dripping or open flames, opt for flameless candles like these flameless pillars.
