|Trace candle around top|
|Place candle on top of apple|
Note that the apple will turn bad after a couple hours but if you want to delay the browning, simply spray lemon juice inside the apple. This is not a long-term candle holder but certainly festive!
|Don't use Elmer's glue -|
it doesn't work!
|You may see glue in between|
the sticks and that's ok!
Third, make sure your twigs are the same height as the candle holder. I wouldn't make them any taller, just to be safe. You don't have to glue down the entire twig (there were times I just glued the top or bottom to the holder and it worked just fine).
Give it some time to dry completely, stick a candle in there (I recommend a tea light since it's small and less likely to cause a fire accident), and enjoy your new candle holders!
|The deeper the cut in the apples, the lower the candles will be!|
If you have apples, a candle holder, a hot glue gun and trees nearby, it can be free for you too!
TOTAL AMOUNT OF TIME: Less than 5 minutes for apple holders, 45 minutes for twig holder
It may be more or less time, depending on the size of your candle holder and how many twigs you use
EASY-PEASY SCALE (1 super easy - 5 very difficult): 1 out of 5
A great activity to help gussy up your home for Autumn, especially around Thanksgiving. I wonder what gourd candleholders might look like!
