DIY Seashell Beeswax Tealights To Remember Summer

In winter it’s so cool to remember the summer passed! Here’s a craft to do that will remind you of sunny days and wonderful lying on the beach. You’ll need clam or oyster shells, deep enough to hold some wax, similar size to a tealight, a double boiler, beeswax, waxed and wired tealight wicks with tabs, decorative sand, and small seashells, a glass bowl and a tray. Melt the beeswax in a double boiler and prepare the seashells by washing them thoroughly and setting them as you want to fill them in a tray filled with sand.  The sand will help to keep the shells in place while the wax is poured and sets. Carefully pour wax into the shells, making sure they stay level and wax doesn’t pour over the edges. Place a wick in the center of each one. The wicks are short and should easily stay in place without the help of a glue gun. When the seashell candles have cooled and cured for 24 hours undisturbed, make terrariums by filling the glass bowl with decorative sand and shells and setting the tealights inside. Enjoy your summer piece!
