DIY: Apple Candle Holder

Though these apple candle holders are small and simple, they really pack a punch when used to decorate a space.


  • Apple
  • Paring Knife
  • Tea Lights
  • Spoon
  • Pen or Marker


  • 2 Minutes per apple


  • You can’t mess this up!

First trace around the tea light using a marker or pen.

Next you use a paring knife to cut along the traced line.

Use a spoon to scoop out that part of the apple. You will want to scoop out a little at a time so you are sure not to remove too much that your candle falls inside of the apple.

Once you removed enough of the apple for your tea light to sit flush with the top you’re done!

* You will want to make these on the same day so they do not brown and turn mushy. To save time trace the tea lights ahead of time so you will just need to cut and scoop!

Did you use apples in your tablescape? Or maybe you have another fun idea for a fruit candle holder. Be sure to share with us by using @DIYBrideBlog on Instagram or email us at
