Glowing Apple Centerpiece

Variety of apples

Sharp knife

Hydrogen peroxide

Short taper candles

Metallic-color chenille




Colored beads



1. Choose a variety of apples with fairly symmetrical shapes.

Wash and dry the apples.

2. Using a knife, cut a hole in center of apple to remove core.

Pour hydrogen peroxide into the hole to prevent the apple from

turning brown; drain. Insert a candle into the hole.

3. Cut several chenille stems to lengths ranging from 6 to 10

inches long. String different colored beads and sequins onto the

chenille stems. Curl the ends of the stems if desired. Insert the

embellished stems into the apples around candles.
