Fruit Votive Holders
These fruit votives look nice when placed on a bed of greenery and surrounded by ribbon and holiday ornaments. If you are concerned about wax, moisture from the fruit or greenery you may wish to lay a piece of aluminum foil over your display surface and cover it with the greenery before arranging the fruit votives and accessories. Never leave candles unattended.

Begin by making a pattern on the fruit. Place the votive over frui and trace around the votive with paring knife, just barely cutting into the skin of the fruit.
Set the votive aside and cut into fruit with paring knife making the cuts on a slight angle. The cut will need to be deep enough for votive to sit flat in fruit.
Insert the votive into fruit and arrange with your other holiday decorations.
