This is an apple.
It’s good for a snack on the go, smothering in caramel,
and for making appearances in pie and big glass bowls.
But it’s also a candleholder.
No, really.
This is so easy, and cute, too!
Don’t believe me?

Step 1:
Hollow out the top (or side, if you prefer) in a circle, about an inch (or a little less) deep.
(you can trace the shape of a tealight on the skin of the apple if it helps- use a marker you can wipe off)

See, Easy!!

You don’t have to just use apples, either. You can use pears, gourds, oranges, lemons or any other non-mushy item! You just have to make sure there is some structure to the vessel otherwise you’ll end up with a mess. I find apples are the easiest, they come in a variety of colors and they tend to be the most classic when it comes to decor.

I’ve used mine in this display of gourds, but these would also look great lined up on a runner down the center of a table, or even sitting at different heights on chunky candle holders!

They’re super versatile, and when you’re done
you can totally eat it!
(Just, you know, remove the tealight first… 🙂 )
