Here's a fun idea to use some shells
for your outdoor decor.
clay pot saucer
I used a pack of tea light candles that I picked up at a tag sale for .10 cents.
The tea lights were my wax & wicks, the wicks have a tiny metal base and slip right out of the candle. Then I dropped the "wickless" candle into a tin can to melt on the side burner of my grill.
When the wax was completely melted, I dipped the wicks into the liquid wax and placed them in my seashells to secure them. Next, in went the wax. They cooled in minutes.

I had more wax then shells so I poured the remaining wax in tin cupcake cups to use as wax melts for another craft at a later time!
Do you collect souvenirs from your vacations?

We always end up toting bags of shells back from the beach, but rarely do we ever do anything with them. What a great idea this is, Maria! So fun, and useful, and a great way to incorporate those beach souvenirs! TFS!ReplyDelete
