Today’s post is super sassy and fun! Come on, it’s EGG CANDLES. I will show you how to transform boring eggs in your fridge into a great centerpiece for your table. You can even use them individually if you choose too! Did I mention they smell DELICIOUS!


you will need


I bought my blocks of wax from Wal-Mart. Completely affordable!


Take your ice pick and lightly crack a piece of the egg. Then you can start peeling the egg to create a hole at the top.


This is what they will look like when done.


Make sure to rinse out the egg completely. We want to get rid of any egg smell.


I used my burner to melt my wax. If you have a ceramic dish you can do it in the microwave but please be careful. It can get really hot. If you decide to do it in the microwave make sure you do it for a minute, stir it then continue doing that until it is completely melted.


I filled a pretty antique dish with moss that I bought from Hobby Lobby.


Next, lay out your eggs in the moss.


Gently place your wicks in the eggs.


Then start pouring your wax. I used a plastic spoon, it works really good.  Once you fill them all up let them sit for a few hours to harden. Trim the wick with scissors and voila!


There you have it. A cute arrangement for any space. Just remember if you make them in different scents that when you light them they might not smell great mixed together. I recommend doing them in one scent if you plan on lighting multiple eggs at a time. I hope you enjoyed this post, see you in the next one Jaderbugs!

Glitter Candles Tutorial

Monday, Monday gotta wake up it’s Mondayyyyy {{singing in my “Friday, Friday}} voice. I have to say I think it is pretty obvious that I LOVE glitter. I have ALWAYS loved glitter but it’s on a whole new level now! I have an addictive personality {go figure} and when I find something that makes my heart beat “really” fast I tend to involve it WAY TOO MUCH in my daily life.  There is only one problem. I somehow glitter everything my little eyes come across now. Maybe it’s the glitter. Yeah, it’s the glitter. I have always used “eh, OK” glitter but I have to be honest, Martha Stewart’s glitter is so powerful. It covers better than my flat sheet covers me at night (and I don’t even have a flat sheet). Now that’s coverage.
You know what I love the most about this craft? The fact that no matter what holiday is coming around you can decorate with candles and glitter. It’s absolutely affordable and believe me when I tell you this! I can’t wait to make bright, bold colors for Christmas! We can’t forget about Easter! Those pastels will be so beautimus.
{{and LENORE, you were RIGHT!!!}}
Let’s get to the craft of the day!

p.s.  These are the three colors that I used for my {{Fall/Halloween}} candles
p.s. Simply coat your candles with mod podge then sprinkle with glitter! Look how pretty they come out!
p.s. I just stuck them in sand and there you have it! How cute! Just think of every holiday you can use these babies for!

Sending you white sand to remind you of the best day ever on the beach,

(me on the show!)
