They're big, kind of funny-looking, and are said to scare away spiders. So why would I want them to decorate my home? Well, a flower-designer friend recently used hedge apples in some arrangements for a rustic wedding and they were perfect! Which made me want my own hedge apple arrangement. But, since I'm already happily married with no new ceremonies in sight, I'm considering hedge apples for seasonal decor. Here are a few ideas I turned up:
Use them in wreaths (though they're a bit big, so the wreath would have to be a doozie), pair their spring-y green with orange pumpkins, or just pile them up alone in a vase or urn! Hedge apples are the perfect color and interesting texture on a simple shape to fit right into contemporary, traditional, or anything-in-between homes.
