The perfect souvenir for a seaside-themed party. What you’ll need:

Bar of paraffin
Wicks
Metal wick holders
double boiler with a pouring lip
shells
pieces of colored candles

Method:

Clean shells in a 10% bleach solution. Rinse with cool water and let dry. Cut up the paraffin block into smaller chunks with a sharp knife. Melt them in the top of the double boiler by heating the water below to a slow simmer. Use the paraffin as is, or you may wish to add bits of colored wax for different color combinations. This is a great way to use up your old candle stubs. Experiment with color blends, but remember that the wax will be a shade darker when it dries.

TODAY'S NEWS:


 

Cover a steady surface with plastic or newspapers. Balance one of the shells on a small cup and slowly pour in the melted wax. Immediately place the wick and wick holder in the center of the shell. Leave wax to cool for at least 30 minutes so all the wax will harden fully.

Light up and enjoy your beautiful sea shell candles!
