Apple Candle Holders
With fall right around the corner, I thought I'd post a fun little project! So simple yet so cute for a fall centerpiece for your table or just for around the house but, you are using real apples so they will only last for so long! This can also be done with mini pumpkins for a cute Halloween or Thanksgiving decoration!
1. Every apple will sit differently, so see how they sit and then mark their topsides with a dot.
2. Place the tea light over the dot, and trace around it with a pencil.
3. Set aside the light, cut the circumference of the circle and then cut the circle into sections and scoop them out with a spoon. Make sure to cut and scoop deep enough for the tea light to sit nicely inside.
4. Squeeze lemon juice onto the cut surface to keep the apple from turning brown, and insert a tea light. Repeat with remaining apples.
