Apple Candlesticks

This unusual table centerpiece is ephemeral — but it’s beautiful while it lasts.

Materials
Large Rome Beauty apples (that will stand straight on the table)
Candles
Waxed paper
Potato peeler
Lemon juice

Instructions
Using an apple corer, make a hole about halfway through the middle of an apple. Make the hole as straight as possible and remove the core piece.
Insert a candle into the hole. It should fit tightly; if the hole is too large, wrap waxed paper around the candle’s end.
Older kids can decorate the apples by carefully carving designs in the skins with the tip of a potato peeler (to prevent the designs from turning brown, rub them with lemon juice).
Arrange the candleholders in a circle on a plate or cutting board.
