An Autumn Decoration

I wanted to share this very cute and easy way to adorn your Thanksgiving table. I have made these for a ladies meeting as well as for our family Thanksgiving celebration. These add a warm, homey touch to your family gathering, but make no mistake, nothing can replace smiling faces of loved ones at the dining room table. 🙂

Items needed:

  • Large red apples, Honey Crisp work the best.
  • Small disk candles. (These can be purchased at craft stores.)

Directions:


Place the disk candle on top of the apple and trace around it. Then, using a sharp knife, cut that circle out. Use a spoon to carve out the flesh of the apple until the candle fits down inside it. The candle should be level with the apple once it’s pushed inside.

Put one at each place setting, or however you’d like to decorate. Light, and enjoy with your favorite people around you.

Thanksgiving blessings,
Valerie

  1. very cute, but if the apples don't get eaten afterwards then it is a wicked, wicked thing to use Honeycrisp apples! I am a little choked up just thinking about it.
