Beeswax Easter Egg Candles.

Today we made another version of our Easter candles… sweet-smelling beeswax eggs!

Lovely Waldorf beeswax egg candles for Easter craftWe needed:

* playdough
* a boiled egg
* about an egg sized amount of beeswax (see melting tutorial here)
* candle wick (from a craft store)
* a toothpick
* a tiny drop of olive oil
* a recycled eggcup
* a stick
Roll the playdough into a ball.
Put a tiny drop of olive oil into the palm of your hand and smooth it over the egg. This will keep the egg from sticking to the playdough. You want the egg to have the smallest coating.
Push the egg into the playdough until it is about two thirds covered.
Gently wiggle the egg out, keeping intact the egg hollow in the playdough… this is your candle mould.
Use the tooth pick to make a hole in the base of the playdough mould.
Thread the candle wick through this hole and pinch the playdough around the wick so that the hole is sealed.Stand your playdough mould back on it’s base, wind the top end of the wick around the stick to keep the wick in the centre of the mould. Pour the melted beeswax into the mould and allow to cool.
Once the wax is cool and solid, peel away the playdough and a lovely egg candle emerges.
It smells so deliciously of honey!!
Another lovely Easter candle to add to our collection for our Easter table.

Blessings and magic for a happy Easter!
