Apple Candleholders

Apples are in season, and they just so happen to make adorable––not to mention budget-friendly––candle-holders. We saw this simple craft listed for Halloween, but we think it can be used for so much more.   Place them on windowsills and mantels for a unique way to cast a glow and usher in fall. Use them in a bowl or on a plate for a unique centerpiece for Thanksgiving. Or place some loose greenery around it for a red and green Christmas display.
