  • How to make a candle. Apple Candles - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your materials. I grabbed a few combo red and green-colored apples from the fridge, and found some spare tealights. Those two items are the main ingredients for this crafty recipe. Add to that a knife, melon baller, and a pen.

    Begin by setting your tea light on top of the apple, at the center. Next, take your pen (ballpoint is best), and trace tightly around the tea light on the apple.

    Next, cut along that line in a very slow sawing motion with the knife. You want to go slow on this so that you will get the best precision line.

    Hollow out the middle of the apple with the melon baller, making sure to stay within the line you created. I found that this part was the trickiest, because the core was thick and tough to remove. Take the jagged edge of the melon baller to scoop out the core. It might take a little muscle work. As you're hollowing out the apple, use the smooth side of the melon baller to get the inner edges of the circle nice and precise.

    Finally, pop the tea light in- I removed the silver casing on the tea light for aesthetics- and light 'er up!
