I first made apple candles when I had my first apartment right after college and I think I have only done them a few times since.

But they have been on my mind again lately, so I thought I would try again for a simple and easy fall table.

Materials: Apples – preferably a softer type, paring knife, spoon, tea light candles and pencil.

Step 1: Mark the shape of the candle on the apple with a pencil.  It is really more of an imprint as opposed to actually leaving a line.  Also, place it so that it is the center with the apple settled – don’t just go the center where the stem is – that may leave you with a crooked candle.

Step 2: Use your paring knife to carefully cut the opening (make sure your hands are clean and you have a good hold).  I found that if I kept going around, the center eventually came out after a few times.  If not, a spoon can be used to scoop out the center.  You may need to clean up the edges with your paring knife.  Simply place the tea light in the opening.

Step 3: Gather up a tray and different items to group with the apple candles.  I used pine cones, vintage crystal door knobs and Autumn Joy Sedum picked from my yard.  I started with two pewter cups and a silver sugar bowl with no lid to put the candles at different heights.  I first layered the pine cones, then the door knobs and finally filled in the the sedum.

This is what I have (not everyone has door knobs laying around) – just work with what you have and layer them together.
