There’s a certain beauty to some of these crafty gems that I can certainly appreciate: the near-certainty that some will devise uses for some things nobody ever necessarily intended. Sure, it’s a candle cutter. And indeed, it does that: it carves cut-outs for candles. Hold this stainless steel kitchen doodad’s T-shaped top; place the other end over a pear, apple, small pumpkin, squash or pear; press down to hollow what needs hollowing out and abraca-freaking-dabra! You’ve concocted something cute, decorative and useful – not to mention a handy snack when its usefulness is served.
Just like the name implies, the tea light candle cutter makes a fine fruity candelabra. But hey, you’re Martha-Meets-MacGuyver, so why stop there? Pour in a little potpourri. Serve up some delicious fondue, then divvy up the chocolate-covered leftover insides of your improvised service later. Set out some nuts or trail mix inside an apple or pear to give your party’s noshables a true nature’s-bounty sensibility.
There’s a line, though. Geek Gems shall not be held in any way responsible should you decide to plant a backyard apple tree and open your neighborhood’s first Build-A-Bong workshop. ;)
