Remember those pretty marbled Easter eggs I showed you yesterday? And remember what half of them looked like when my little toddler dropped them on the floor and they broke? A sad shattered mess. Well, I just couldn’t bring myself to throw all that hard work and those beautiful swirls away!
So I turned them into marbled Easter egg candles! Which was actually really easy, and all I had to buy were the wicks! These candles would make a great decoration for your home for spring and Easter, and would be fun to light at the table for your Easter dinner.
Of course you don’t have to marble these eggs for the candles, you could always leave them white, or just dye as usual using whatever colors you would like!
- Plain, dyed, or marbled eggs blown out eggs- Here’s my easy tutorial for how to make the marbled eggs (and how to blow out the insides of the eggs)
- Old candle, or candle wax (can buy at Michaels or Joanns)
- Candle wicks (can buy at Michaels or Joanns)- mine were 3 1/2″, but 3″ would be fine, too.
- Small amount of clay, play dough (or anything to plug up the hole in the bottom of the egg)
- A pot (don’t worry, it won’t even touch the wax!)
So are you ready for Easter? It’s so early this year!
