There is something magical about a candle… it’s little flickering light adding warmth and glow to the night. We often light a candle at dinner time and the kids take turns to blow it out when we have finished our meal. Beeswax candles are favorites… their warm golden color, their sweet honey smell. We have all types of candles, some hand dipped, some that are amazing shapes and colors. It is always a treat to light a candle.
Today we made adorable little candles with seed pods we picked up on a walk recently. We are going to take these sweet candle boats with us to South Africa so that they can light our Christmas table.
I cut candle wick (from a craft store) to the right length for the pods. When the beeswax was melted, I dipped the end of a wick into the melted wax and used it to stick the wick onto the bottom of the seedpod.
Then, I poured the melted wax into the seedpod, let it cool and our Christmas candles were ready to wrap for the journey.
You can find beeswax for sale online (I have a few blocks listed in my Fairyfolk shop)
Isn’t it wonderful what you can make using gifts from Mother Earth?
Blessings and magic,
