Purchase a few of the mini pumpkins from your local grocery store and trace a circle around the top of each pumpkin and carve out the circle. Insert a tea light candle and you're done. You can place these randomly around the house, or you can put them in a large rustic looking container filled with water. Add a few fall leaves springs of herbs for some color. The pumpkins float nicely.
