Isn't this cute? I took a 6" "Juicy Apple" red pillar candle that I purchased at Michael's for 20 cents on clearance, dressed it up, and VIOLA~ a cute little giftie for my DD's preschool teachers, or even my co-workers for the holidays. And at only 20 cents each, you know I cleared all of them off the shelf at Michaels!

I cut a piece of brown cardstock in the shape of a leaf, used a stylus to add vein details to the leaf and curl it a bit. Attached to the wax candle with a small brad, which was pushed directly into the candle. With the wick standing straight up, it resembles a stem. Around the bottom I adhered stickers letters (rub-ons work too!) to spell out Apples {4} Teacher.
