It's the only thing standing between me and these incredibly lovely DIY apple candle holders, the perfect fall centerpiece or mantle décor.
I'll scoop out the top of a Red Delicious or Gala apple - with bright yellow undertones that peek out from it's lovely light red sheen.

A floating candle (IKEA sells a pack of 24 for less than $12) fits snugly with the wick sticking about one half inch above each apple top. Tea lights, of course, are cheaper but won't last quite as long.
I could leave these amazing candle holders "as is" but dripping melted wax down the sides at different lengths give them that rustic and romantic charm.
Apple candle holders placed in a row makes any room feel cozy and inviting.

fall centerpiece idea.
