Use the surplus from apple season to make tabletop decorations.


  • Apples

  • For votive: Tea lights

  • Craft knife

  • Melon baller

  • For place cards: Green paper

  • Scissors


  1. Place a tea light on an apple; cut around edge with a craft knife. Scoop out flesh with a melon baller, and insert candle.

  2. Using decorative-edged scissors, cut leaves from green paper. Put 1 end of a 3-inch-length of floral wire between 2 leaves; use craft glue to paste together. Repeat with opposite end of wire and 2 more leaves.

  3. Write guest name on 1 leaf. Wrap wire around apple stem.
