    How To Make It

    1. Place your shell on the waxed paper. Cut the wick so that it is the depth of the shell plus 2 inches more. Tie one end to pencil.
    2. Place the pencil across shell top so that wick is suspended above center of shell.
    3. Melt the wax according to the manufacturer's instructions. Carefully pour the melted wax into your shell, filling it to rim.
    4. Allow it to stand for a few hours in a safe place so that the wax completely hardened. if the kids would like more sparkle to their candles let them decorate the shells BEFORE adding the wax.
    5. They can use glitter, stickers, beads, pearls, etc.
