i got these quails eggs from the supermarket, i couldn’t resist they were just so beautiful, so i decided to make little candles with them,
i cracked the top of the shell gently and washed them out and then let them dry.
i got two tea light candles and carefully removed the wick and placed it inside the egg shell and cut up the candle wax into small pieces. then in a microwave safe, (disposable) jar i melted the wax until it turned to liquid and poured it into the shells making sure the wick was central. i placed them in fridge to harden.
to make the blue egg i tightly wrapped some lace around it with a elastic band.
then i put it in a bowl of boiling water, with food colouring and 1/3 cup of vinegar.
and left it for 15 minutes.
when taking the lace off the egg wait for it to dry and cut it off at the elastic band.
on a larger egg the lace pattern would be more visible but if you look really closely you can see the pattern on the egg
as they are so light unless you have something to put them in, i suggest using them as floating candles.
