How To . . . Make an Artichoke Votive

Yesterday Maxwell re-posted How To make a clementine candle. Loving that idea and thinking of other directions, we looked up the possibility of making an artichoke votive (tealight candle required, so it's a bit more high maintenance). We found this how-to, using either an orange or an artichoke. We vote artichoke - what's not to love? Details below the jump. Artichoke or Orange Clove Twinkler Materials: Knife, whole cloves, beeswax candle, whole artichoke or orange Steps: 1. Cut the bottom of the orange or artichoke so it can sit flat. 2. Cut a hole in the center. 3. Scoop out the insides enough to fit a candle. 4. Decorate the rim of hole by pressing cloves into the orange or artichoke skin. 5. Insert beeswax candle in the center hole. Voila!
