Buy larger ones that will hold the tea light without the flame coming close to the rim of the opening.
Another idea is those little sugar pie ones. Those you can carve a real JOL out of, but again they have tough hides so be careful. They will last a lot longer than regular JOL's though, because they are so dense.
Here's one from a couple of years back.

I think that would make a good decoration, you'd have to put a hole in the buttom.
I kind of got the idea from Nevermore when he said he used Christmas lights for his pumpkins, I think the little ones could be lined up and lit up with the lights. Maybe have them leading to the big flickering pumpkin that's traditionally used.
I've got one sitting on my desk. Trying to think of what to do with it... carve it, paint it, or throw it at the barking dog next door. Decisions, decisions.
