So I can't say this is my own idea...But, I decided to make something I saw online.
It's pretty easy to do and they make a cute little gift.
What you need:
-Small candle wicks
-Large sea shells
|These were some of the shells I picked up|
I saved wax that had similar scents and mixed some unscented candle wax from some tea lights I had, in with the scented wax as well. That way it isn't too overpowering.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Melt the wax in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals.
2. Once the wax is melted (or some of it is at least - it doesn't need to be entirely melted for this part), pour a tiny blob of wax into the shell, place the wick, and hold in place. Let it sit and harden for a minute or two.
|Here's one of my shells with the wax hardening|
4. Trim the wick and you're done!
|Here are the final candles! Cute or what?!|
|This is my favourite candle :)|
