I love these adorable Easter Egg Candles!
Believe it or not – they were super-easy to make, and can be customized based on your preferences!
Start by carefully cracking open the tip of the egg with a spoon! The hole should be about the size of a quarter.
Remove egg from shell and carefully clean out the inside of the shell. Set aside to dry.
It’s up to you whether you’d like to “color” the shell or not. If you choose to dip the clean egg shell in a color, I learned it was better to do this AFTER the contents were removed and the shell was clean. Not only does this color the inside of the shell, but if you try to dye the eggs before you remove the contents, when you try to wash it, most of the color will come off!
Take some simple votive candles and remove the metal cup and wick. You’ll need the same number of votives as the number of candles you’d like ot make. Take the wicks you’ve removed from the votive, and set one wick in the bottom of each clean and dry egg shell. Set aside.
Take the wax from the votive candles and shave with a knife. Put shavings into a clean and dry tin can. I prefer to press the side of the can, which creates a “spout” at the top rim – much easier to pour wax out!
With tongs, carefully melt wax over boiling water. I had best results when I gently moved the can around the pot.
Once all of the wax is melted (it will look like liquid, with no waxy lumps) let cool for just a minute. Use an oven mitt or dish towel to hold the bottom of the can and pour the liquid into the egg shells.
The wax will melt fairly quickly (10-15 minutes).
Be creative with your display of the candles: Use traditional taper candle holders or you can display your candle in a cute clay pot, decorated in an Easter theme…
Apply any pastel or Easter ribbon to the rim of a small clay pot, using a glue gun. I purchased these clay pots, 3 for $1, at a dollar store. Fill with a grass of your preference (can be Easter grass or a more natural looking grass such as the type used in the photo.
Don’t think you have time to create these decorations?!?
