Tools and Materials

Fall apple craft

1. Make the Hole

Using the small side of your melon baller, scoop out some of the apple. This makes the perfect hole for your taper candle to sit.

The process leaves you with a clean and polished look.

2. Add Your Candle

Now, take your taper candle and gently insert it into the apple, repeating this process for as many apple candle holders as you desire

3. Arrange Your Easy Fall Centerpiece

I put together a group of six apple candle holders to make the centerpiece. I also added three gourds for some variety. You can use gourds, apples, or any other reasonably firm produce to make these candle holders.

I'm not worried about dripping wax with this centerpiece, because the apples catch it all.

    Had a lovely Harvest table for the Thanksgiving meal and the centerpiece had a runner with fabric that was Fall colors. On the runner was faux tiny pumpkins, leaves and small name tags at each place setting. Also on the runner were candles in a round glass held in place with with orange and red beads! It was lovely!
