Apple or Pumkin candle holders, Great for fall

This craft can also be done with the small table pumpkins ( or some folks call them squash) that are so popular right now in the grocery stores.

What you need:

What you do:

  1. If you are going to place the apple votives in the water check how they float first. Do this by filling the pot you'll be putting them in and marking with a dot the side that stays up above the water.
  2. Place a tea candle over the dot you have made in #1 and trace around its circumference with a utility knife, inserting the knife vertically as deep as the tea candle is tall.
  3. Set aside the candle, and cut the circle into sections and scoop out using the spoon. Squeeze lemon juice onto the cut surface to keep the apple from turning brown, and insert a tea candle
