Apple Candlesticks

This unusual table centerpiece is ephemeral -- but it's beautiful while it lasts.


  • Large Rome Beauty apples (that will stand straight on the table)
  • Candles
  • Waxed paper
  • Potato peeler
  • Lemon juice

1. Using an apple corer, make a hole about halfway through the middle of an apple. Make the hole as straight as possible and remove the core piece.

2. Insert a candle into the hole. It should fit tightly; if the hole is too large, wrap waxed paper around the candle's end.

3. Older kids can decorate the apples by carefully carving designs in the skins with the tip of a potato peeler (to prevent the designs from turning brown, rub them with lemon juice).

4. Arrange the candle holders in a circle on a plate or cutting board
