Today we made another version of our Easter candles… sweet-smelling beeswax eggs!
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.
Blessings and magic for a happy Easter!
