Quick and Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Hey guys! With Thanksgiving next week, I thought it was due time for me to share a pretty centerpiece idea with you!

This one is super inexpensive to put together, and easy as can be!

To get started, you'll need some supplies!

- 1 thin, somewhat shallow glass or plastic container

- Gold (or color of your choice) ribbon (optional)
- 3 apples in the variety of your choosing
- 3 candles
- 1 12oz bag of cranberries
- Scissors (not pictured)
- A small knife (not pictured)
If you're using ribbon, being by tying that around your container. I did mine in a nice square knot with the ends cut on a diagonal.
Use your knife to cut a small cone shape out of your apple on the stem side. You'll want this to be approximately the same size as your candle. Tapering the cut in towards the center of the apple will help ensure a snug fit for your candle.
Place the candle in the hole you cut in your apple and repeat with the other apples!
Next, get your apples all situated in your container.
And then, pour in the cranberries, making sure to evenly distribute them around the apples.
And, voila! A quick, easy, and beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece done in no time!

I hope you enjoyed checking out this tutorial!


Til next time!
