I love love love green apples… for decorating! Yes, these darling tart beauties are a very economical and an oh, so pretty way to fill our homes with color and texture! And I love love love decor that is easy to do and takes only a little time to create! So, today I’m combining my love for apples and easy to do decor and showing you how to make a green apple centerpiece that only takes 10 (okay… maybe 15) minutes to create!
Today is FARMHOUSE FRIDAY so I’m joining the farmhouse girls and we are celebrating APPLES! Make sure to check out their creative apple posts!
I created this centerpiece at my daughter’s home on Capital Hill in DC and her home is NOT a farmhouse… so this centerpiece may have a more “urban” appeal (get the pun). If you want to make it more “farmhousey” line the apples on an old cutting board or put them in a flat basket.
This centerpiece could not be easier to do! You will need:
- apples that are about the same size
- votive candles
- a small sharp knife
- mellon baller
- vegetable oil
- something to put the apples on or in
Put a votive candle on top of the apple and trace around it with a pen. Cut a hole out of the apple using the pen markings as a guide and dig out the center with a mellon baller. So easy! Just don’t get overly zealous cutting. A little bit at a time. When the hole is cut out oil the inside of the hole with a little vegetable oil to keep the apple from getting brown.
Put the votive in the hole in the apple. Put the apples on something pretty and embellish with leaves or tiny pinecones. Be creative… but don’t over do it!
Beautiful!!! And so so easy and fast to make!!!
Your centerpiece will keep a couple of days. So use it and enjoy it!!!!
