Fresh Apple Tea Lights

Happy Sunday all.  I hope you all had a great week.  Today, I want to share an easy DIY project using fresh apples.  These fresh apple tea lights are such a gorgeous idea to decorate a fall or Thanksgiving table.  Inexpensive and so simple to make.




All you need are a few fresh apples and a few tea lights.  How easy is that??  They are always my go to for adding a fall touch to any table.  


















I used red apples for this project but you can use any color you wish.  Be sure to use a firm apple for this project.  It will make cutting out the middle much easier.  I also try to pick ones that are similar in shape and sizes.

Materials Need For Apple Tea Lights:

  • Apples
  • Tea Lights
  • Paring knife or pastry cutter
  • Lemon Juice
  • Ground Cinnamon (optional)



  1. Place the tea light upside down on top of the apple and trace the circle with a pencil or pen
  2. Cut with a paring knife around the circle inserting the knife vertically as deep as the light is tall.
  3. Scoop them out with a spoon
  4. Squeeze lemon juice onto the cut surface to keep the apple from turning brown
  5. Insert a tea light
  6. Repeat with as many apples as you will use



I hope you all have a wonderful week.  Thank you all for visiting me today.

Fondly,

Janet

  6. It's pretty how the candle wax melts down them. It makes them looked glazed and sweet. A nice touch for Halloween. xoxo Su

  9. Such a pretty idea love the touch of cinnamon! I think I'll make a few of these for my daughter to use in her Thanksgiving decor. I'll just have to coax a few of the winter apples out of the top of the tree. Thanks for sharing this fun idea Janet. Have a lovely week ~ Mickie.
