Seashell Candles // How-To

Monday

Starting off Monday by making a few seashell candles to bring a little bit of summer inside. To make these, I melted a block of candle wax in a pot and added some essential oils that remind me of some of my favorite summertime memories. While it melted, I attached wicks to the inside of the shells with craft glue. Once the wax was completely melted, I poured it into the shells and let it harden. 

It's the little, simple things like this that make summertime that much more lovely.
