      * Place a row of apples in the center, carve out just enough to place a green tea-light candle and set it down into the apple. Makes a beautiful addition to the table (To prevent the cut area from browning too quickly, dip into lemon juice.

      * Place a small wicker basket in the center on a pretty placemat, add pinecones & a couple oranges & apples

      * Pint Size Mason Jars: fill the bottom with cracked corn and place a (colored) candle in the middle

        Oh, I love your candle sconce, that is so pretty! I want to make some autumn sconces using the new wineglass tea light lamp tutorial and add some flowers around the base for our mantle. Last year we used the candy corn idea and I got a ton of compliments from various guests throughtout the season. One thing though, if you have high humidity, the candy corn will get sticky!
