These Seashell Beeswax Candles are part of a collection of homemade seasonal candles I make to add to our nature tables. In the past I have made Walnut Shell Candles for Winter, and Orange Peel Candles for Summer. Unlike the Walnut Shell Candles, these unfortunately cannot float, which was kind of disappointing! They are very beautiful though and easy to make. Do not leave these unattended! They burn very fast and unpredictably.
- Place wick in the seashells. You can adhere with glue or carefully hold it in place while you maneuver the wax.
- Melt the beeswax in a double boiler.
- Very carefully drip the wax into the shells while keeping the wick above the melted wax.
- Let harden.
- Light only under direct supervision.
