Instructions:

1. Choose a variety of apples with fairly symmetrical shapes. Wash and dry the apples.

2. Using a knife, cut a hole in center of apple to remove core. Pour hydrogen peroxide into the hole to prevent the apple from turning brown; drain. Insert a candle into the hole.

3. Cut several chenille stems to lengths ranging from 6 to 10 inches long. String different colored beads and sequins onto the chenille stems. Curl the ends of the stems if desired. Insert the embellished stems into the apples around candles.
