DIY Apple Votives for Entertaining

by | Nov 4, 2019 | Uncategorized

Who is ready for Holiday Entertaining?!  If you fall short on your tablescape planning, we have a last minute DIY solution.  It’s easy, inexpensive, and you can use things you already have around the house!

Supply List

  1. Apples
  2. Tea Lights
  3. Power Drill
  4. 1 1/2″ Paddle Drill Bit

NOTE: If power tools or a paddle bit is not available to you, a melon scooper will do the trick. And, if you are more safety-minded about an open flame, you can use a flameless tea light.

This DIY project is so easy, but there are a few tricks.  Go Slow! with the drill.  It only takes a couple of turns of the drill and if you do it too fast, you will split the apple.  It is a small juicy mess, so attempt this project on a surface that is appropriate.  See a quick view of the process in the video below:

Once you have your apple votives prepared, fine unique ways to use them! Place them on an elevated stand within a centerpiece, across a buffet board, add one to a cheese tray for interest, display them across a mantle or down the length of your table runner.  Grab some fresh greenery from your yard and voila!

Happy Entertaining!
