How cool is this! Now I'm able to make fruits and vegetables into tea light holders.
Now I can have my candles and eat them too ;-)
I found this the last time I visited with Squeaks. I think I found it at Sur la Table.
I have a couple of apples that are past their prime so I experimented on them.
It's really pretty easy. My apples sat relatively straight so I didn't have to trim the bottoms at all.
Just press the candle carver into the top of the fruit, or vegetable of your choice.
It takes a twisting-pushing motion so you'll need to hold the food in one hand while you twist and turn the carver with the other.
Just keep pushing <sorry if this causes some of you childbirth flashbacks, it sure did me> and turning the carver into the food.
I didn't stop until the top of the carver was even with the apple.
The chunk of food pulls out easily.
Would you look at that, the tea lights fit perfectly.
I can't wait to try it with other foods.
I would like to float them in the vase in the background <sans flowers of course> I think that would look so pretty.
Wouldn't the Thanksgiving table look great with these on them.
And that's that
