Create a beautiful table decoration in a flash with some candles and a few fresh ingredients.

Pumpkins and gourds light up
any autumn gathering.

To make a Decorative Rim Pumpkin, practically all you need are gourds, a knife and some toothpicks. Add a pumpkin and some candles, and your table is ready.

You can make a fresh version or use artificial items for a display that will last beyond this season.

You may already have the makings of Apple Candleholders in your pantry. If not, a quick trip to the grocery store will set you up.

More festive fruit ideas: Alternate green Granny Smith apples with a bright red variety. Or, since a muffin tray steadies the fruit, consider using oranges, large lemons, or even pomegranates as colorful candleholders.

 
Autumn Candles

It doesn't get any easier than
votives in a bowl.

Arrange Autumn Candles by popping votives into a dish of dried beans, nuts, or popcorn.

Be sure to keep an eye on the candles so they don't burn down too far, and keep out of reach of children so they're not tempted to nibble.
