Easter Egg Candles


Supplies:
  • Eggs
  • Candle Wax
  • Wax Dye
  • Wire Wicks
  • Holders
  • Egg Dye

Directions:
  1. Peirce top of egg with needle and widen the hole to the desired opening. Pour out yolks and clean the shells. Let dry.
  2. Although we used brown eggs, another option is to use white eggs and dye them Easter colors. Follow dye instructions and be sure to let the eggs dry before adding wax.
  3. Melt wax in double boiler, adding color last (according to packet instructions). If you do not have a double boiler, you can use an aluminum can in a pot of water.
  4. Cut wire wicks into 4-inch pieces. Fold one end and seal to bottom of egg with a few drops of melted wax. Then, fill the egg to brim with the melted, colored wax. When the wax hardens, it will sink in the middle. Refill this dip with more wax later.
  5. Once the wax has hardened, trim wicks and light!
