DIY Apple Candles

Yes, I am still apple-crazy!  There are so many ways to incorporate apples into a wedding theme that I just can't stop =)  Here's how to make easy apple candles for some romantic decor:

Materials: Melon baller, paring knife, tealights, apples, pen

Step 1: Trace tealight on the center of the apple.

Step 2: Use a knife to cut along the marked circle.

Step 3: Cut out the top of the apple.

Step 4: Use a melon baller to make the hole deep enough for a tealight to fit.

*here's a scooped out apple

Step 5: Place tealight in the scooped out part of the apple.

And that's it!  Make sure you scoop out enough of the apple to completely conceal the tealight~this makes it really look like the apple is the whole candle.

For an easy table centerpiece, arrange apple candles around a large vase filled with apples and flowers.

Have fun!
