It’s been raining here all week, and we lost power a couple of times (luckily only for short durations!) which really freaked out my little one who is afraid of the dark. We decided to make some new beeswax candles in fun shapes and packages just in case we needed to use them in the middle of the storm. We started with a silicone star mold from Ikea to make these stellar floating candles.
We made egg shell candles, like we did last year, but this year I also attempted to make whole egg shaped candles using the egg shell as a mold and then peeling it away. Only one of the two came out of the shell cleanly, but it was a big hit.
Orange peel candles were also popular, and they smell really great too! They look like bright orange flowers sitting up on our mantle!
We made a few beeswax flowers for the nature table, and Sutton requested a snowflake ornament to hang up in his bedroom, “cause it looks really cool even though it’s almost Springtime.”
