One of my favorite things about entertaining in the fall is dining by candlelight. For tomorrow evening's dinner, I made these apple votives to place down the center of the table.
They are super quick to put together and you may already have all of the supplies on hand.
For this project you'll need: peat pots (available from your local nursery); fresh apples; jute twine or string of your choice (to tie the leaves to the pots); moss; tea light candles; fall leaves from your backyard; and it's super handy to have a melon baller on hand to carve out the apples.
Helpful tips: Fill the peat pot with crunched paper first so you just need to add moss to the top. To prepare your votives the day before, rub lemon juice over the carved apple and place in the fridge until ready to use. When carving the hole for the tea light, start with the melon baller, and then neatly finish edges with a pairing knife.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
