Step 1: Melt the Wax

Add enough water to the pot that a tin can will sit without tipping over. Place the beeswax inside a tin can and leave until the bowling water melts it down to a liquid.

Step 2: Drill the Holes

While the wax is melting, use a drill bit to drill a hole in the top of the pumpkin or gourd and remove any seeds. You can also cut the top off of the pumpkin or gourd and use a spoon to remove the seeds.
