Use turnips in varying sizes for the most interesting display. As usual, don't leave lit candles unattended.

For each candle, remove the votive candle from its protective metal case. Turn the metal piece upside down, and use it as a cookie cutter to mark a circle in the top of the turnip, pressing down to pierce the flesh.
With the melon baller, hollow out the circle deep enough to rest the candle flush with the vegetable's surface. Place the candle (without the metal piece) inside the hollowed turnip.
