DIY Apple Candles

The holidays are fast approaching and we are excited to host friends and family for a Thanksgiving feast! Since this is a special occasion I love to go all out and set a pretty table. Layering some fresh greenery and fall fruit on top of a paper table runner keeps things simple and classy. I found these fairy tale pumpkins at a local grocery store and they will usually last the entire season as long as I don't cut them. Candles are a staple when it comes to centerpieces and these DIY apple candles are so easy and festive. Perfect for the fall season!

To make them you will need:
1. Place the cookie cutter on the top center of the apple and press it down. This will make the outline of the hole for the candle.

2. Next, using a knife scoop out enough of the apple so the candle can sit without having the sides exposed.

3. Pour lemon juice into the hole and let it sit for about 5 minutes. This will help keep the apple from turning brown.

4. Press the tea light into the hole.

5. Light and enjoy!
