They are great for adding a pretty touch to any room and would make great centerpieces or favors at a wedding.
Step 1: Materials
-large shells (you can probably buy them online or at your local craft store if you don't have access to a beach)
-wicks (craft store)
-wax of your choice (I used soy wax shavings since I live in a dorm and they melt in the microwave)
-bowl or cup for wax
-larger bowl for water to create double boiler effect
-spoon for stirring and pouring
-fragrance (soy doesn't hold on to scent very well, but I added some vanilla and lavender to different batches and it still smelled nice)
Step 2: Prepare shells
Step 3: Melt wax
Follow the directions for whatever kind of wax you use. Some may not be able to melt in the microwave.
Once it is mostly melted, I used the spoon to stir until all the checks were dissolved and to cool the wax slightly.
