So it’s the day before New Years Eve. And we’ll be hosting a small dinner party, well part of one. Nothing fancy. Just a group of neighbors. We’ll be doing a different course at each house. We have the main dinner course. It’s going to be easy-baked trout. We live in a shoe box sized house so we can do anything big and extravagant…..like sit at the dinning room table-CAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ONE. We have to shove all our living room furniture to the side and set up a folding table to accommodate all of us……..a whopping EIGHT of us that is. Did I mention I have a crafting problem. And I’m coming off a holiday high of crafting, and I found myself wanting to make something fun and quirky for center pieces. So here it is-Citrus Candles.
Citrus-I used Satsumas
Sharp paring knife
Optional: tooth picks, hole punch, crafting scissors
Start by carefully cutting the peel horizontally around the citrus. You need to be able to separate the fruit from the peel so don’t cut too deep. The ‘top’ or where the steam is actually becomes the bottom. You can experiment with cutting in half or thirds to create different looks and heights.
Carefully separate the peel from the fruit.
