At first glance would you guess that this gorgeous candle is made with egg shells? With Easter right around the corner this is really appropriate, but you certainly don’t have to wait for Easter! I just saved a few shells from hard boiled eggs. It’s simple elegance!
What you will need:
- Mason jar
- Egg Shells
- Food coloring
- 2 Bowls
- Tacky glue
- Floral décor (the puffy balls are actually cut up floral arrangements… fake flowers would look very nice too)
- Tea Light Candle
Rinse and dry the egg shells.
Add a few drops of food coloring to a bowl of water.
Add the eggs and allow them to soak until you are happy with the color they become (I left mine for several hours while I ran errands). Remove the shells and let dry.
Cover the mason jar in tacky glue. Gently place the egg shells against the tacky glue. Leave some open space for the light to shine through. Add a few rhinestones. Arrange the puffy balls around the top. Allow to dry.
Place a tea light candle inside and enjoy!
