  • Red apples
  • Fake snow
  • Candles
  • Silver ribbon

  1. Take fresh red apples. They look festive and go well with traditional Christmas colors
  2. Remove the center part of an apple with a special knife. Don’t cut all the way through
  3. Cover the apples with glue and dip them in decorative fake snow. It will shine beautifully and won’t melt

Do you think an apple corer would work for taking out the center? I would always just use a paring knife for most crafts like these apples. They are so cute, but I am a little worried about how long they last too. Would it work better if you dried them first? That might help the odor ashleroo. Just let them dry in the sun all day before using them.

I really like the look of this apple votive holder. It feels rustic and charming. I do think that it would give a nice feel to any holiday centrepiece. My worry would be that it might attract rodents and bugs (I live in the country...this is a very real concern!) I feel like my house would be a mass of fruit flies if I left this out too long. I do like the idea that it is compostable and cheap though. I think that I would use those little plastic battery operated votives so I didn't have to worry about real ones on the table. I like how the fake snow adds some sparkle! Cute!

How long will the apples last? trying to figure out when is a good time to make them.

Hi there, cut apples keep for less than a week. Hope that helps! - Julia from AllFreeChristmasCrafts

What kind of special knife and where would I get one?

Hello, Thank you for your message. We reached out to the blogger but were unable to get any additional details about what specific knife she used to create this project. We apologize for the inconvenience.
