DIY Seashell Candles

I’m not sure why I fell off the DIY bandwagon. For a while, I was consistently making things and sharing them on the blog. I had such an inspiring visit with my cousin in New York City this weekend and I think I left energized to try something creative again. To say this was an easy project is an understatement. I was expecting a colossal Pinterest fail as I was making these candles and it was so simple I actually did in between cooking dinner and doing laundry.

When I went to North Carolina and Brazil this summer, I brought home tons of seashells that I put in a vase. I got some seriously big ones in North Carolina that were perfect for this project. They are SO cute! Here’s how to make sea shell candles in less than 15 minutes:

What you need:
Large and deep shells
Tealight candles
Candle warmer

What you need to do:
Melt the wax from the tea candles on the warmer
Once melted, carefully remove the wick
Carefully pour the wax in the shell
Allow it to harden just a bit, not completely
Gently put the wick in the wax
Allow to harden completely



That’s it!
