DIY Seashell Candles

Get excited, candle lovers! It’s time for some do-it-yourself seashell candles! This tutorial is very easy, and you probably have all of the materials needed other than candle wax and wick. I bought these at amazon…candle wax was a little over $10 for 10 pounds 🙂 Pretty good deal, I’d say. You can use any container to hold the wax…scour your house, get your friends together, and craft away!

    Wow, it never occurred to me to make my own candles. This can get really creative!! Have you tried adding food coloring to the wax?
