We gathered these clam shells from Nyla's school field trip awhile back. I remembered making shell candles back when I was a little girl so I thought it would be fun to do with Nyla.
As always, Nyla added her fun, creative twist to my ordinary plain. YAY, I just love her!
WHAT YOU NEED:
crayons with wrappers removed & broken up
wax (we used soy)
Just melt your wax according to directions
(we melted ours in the microwave w/safe containers)
Add melted crayons (we used Nyla's favorite colors, blue, pink & green)
Add your wick (this is the trickiest part trying to get your wick to stay up)
Add anything fun to melted wax, Nyla chose to add crayons, crayon shavings & some of the wax that spilt out of shells when it dried she broke off & added to wax)
(Nyla gave some to her teacher as part of a thank you gift & now I've got plenty of candles for hurricane season!)
