In fact, they can be made by using simple materials, easily available at our homes. Below given are some Thanksgiving decoration ideas for children, which they would love to try.

Apple Candle Stands
- Large Rome Beauty apples (they stand straight on the table)
- Waxed paper

- Lemon juice
- Make a hole about halfway through an apple, using an apple corer. Keep the hole as straight as possible and remove the core piece from the apple.
- Now, insert a candle into the hole, in a way that it fits tightly into the apple. In case, you have made a large hole in the apple, wrap waxed paper around the end of the candle.
- Make use of the potato peeler to carve different designs on apple, by peeling out its skin.
- Rub lemon juice on the designed parts of the apple, to prevent them from turning brown in color.
- Arrange the candles in a circle or a row, on the candle plate or a cutting board, whichever is available.
