ombre heart candles





 you will need
silicone ice tray (dollar store)
tea light candles (dollar store)
pink wax crayons
old cup or jar

remove the tea lights from the metal casings and remove the wicks, place them in to the tray. with the candles you removed the wicks from break up the wax into small pieces, and on some baking paper make 4 piles.
add a different colour crayon to 3 of the piles, and leave one plain, i used 3 shades of pink. put the plain wax in an old cup and microwave until it has melted and pour a little in each one of the moulds. then do the same with one of the piles with crayon (lightest pink) and pour that, in, continue melting the next colour by adding the next lot of wax into the same cup with the darker crayon and put back in the microwave and once the tray is full place in the fridge to harden.
