Citrus Candle Cups

Warm, sweet and fragrant, these carved orange lanterns are sure to win smiles from family and friends alike!


What you’ll need for each candle cup:

1 orange (flat-bottomed tangerine is best)

Paring knife

Grapefruit spoon

Razor knife

1 tea light

Optional: Coarse salt (to use as bed of faux snow)


To do:

Slice the top off of the orange with a paring knife. Scoop out the fruit using a grapefruit spoon. Cut star, heart and/or flower shapes out of the peel with a razor knife. Add a tea light in the pierced orange cup. Optional: Display orange candle cups on a plate that’s layered with a coat of coarse salt to add snow-like sparkle.
