DIY Seashell Candles

by - March 27, 2021

These decorative seashell candles have been my fav little project I've made this year. It cost little to no money to make and looks beautiful displayed. I'm a candle fanatic, so when I saw these seashell candles on tik tok, I knew I had to make them. Using seashells as candleholders is a fun and unique way of displaying your candles. I've had a bag of seashells that I purchased years ago and never got the opportunity to use them until now. You can also purchase a bag of seashells at the dollar tree. Better yet, if you live near the beach, you can definitely look for some there. Learn how easy it is to make these beautiful seashell candles in less than 20 minutes.

1.) Gather a bunch of tealights and pop out the candle wax from the metal tins. 

2.) Remove the wick from the candles.

3.) Add a dap of glue to the bottom of the wick and place it in the center of the seashells.

4.) Paint the edges of the shells gold.

5.) Melt the candle wax over low heat.

6.) Carefully pour the melted wax into each seashell.

7.) Allow the wax to harden.

8.) Once the wax has cooled, you can light your candles!
