Apple Candle Holders

My home decor is mainly of the colors black, white, and gray, but Fall always inspires me to add a little warmth into my color pallet. I LOVE Fall. Apples, pumpkin spice lattes, colorful leaves, and slightly cooler weather; what’s not to love? With this simple centerpiece, I can bring a little bit of that love right to my table.

If you need a quick table centerpiece or an easy decoration for a fall gathering you are hosting, then this project is for you. (It may take me longer to write how I made this, than it actually did to make it.)

Plate for displaying apples

Lighter or matches

First, cut a circle about 1 inch deep out of top, center of the apples.

Next, place the tea lights in the holes, display on the plate, light each candle, and keep away from children.

I was originally going to use tapered candles but as I was cutting the holes, I made them a little too big. Thankfully, I had some tea lights that worked in a pinch. What do you like to use for your  fall decor?

      After I cut the apples, I dipped them in a little water with lemon juice, to help stop them from turning brown. Thanks for visiting, Deauna!
