Anyone looking for ideas for how to use all the beautiful shells they find on the beach, this is for you.
Large whole shells
Wax melting pot/wax warmer
Hot glue gun
Crayon – color of your choice
Candle scent/scented wax
Inspect shells for holes or cracks. Disassemble the tea candles. Flatten out the piece of foil that was holding the wax, to mold against the area of the shell where you will set the wick.
Use a tiny bit of glue just to hold foil and wick in place. Put your wax, or tea candles in melting pot with the peeled crayon, and scented wax. Boil water, and hold melting pot in water everything is completely melted.
You can choose to use the tea candle wax only, or melt extra wax if the shell seems like it will need more. Pour the wax into prepared shells, and let cool.
Light the candles and enjoy!
