What to do with shells from summer?

Looking for an easy way to use that pile of shells you brought home from the beach? How about shell candles!

If you have any large shells, like these Venus Sunray Clams, you don’t need much else to whip up a batch of summerific candles. Summerific might be my new favorite word!

Grab some tea-light candles, tinfoil, parchment paper (or use more tinfoil) and a baking sheet and you’re ready to roll.

Turn the oven on low.

Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the metal around the candles and place them in the shells.

Get your candles balanced for minimum wax loss! Tinfoil nests worked.

They melt really quick so keep an eye on them. Once done, let them cool until the wax hardens and you’re ready to enjoy. Some of our shells sat a little wonky on the table, so we just put a little something under the shell to keep them from spilling wax everywhere.

Easy-peasy and so SUMMERIFIC!
