Egg Shell Candles

By: Wendy Robbins from

Egg Shell Candles

"Sometimes I’m amazed that I’m not a hoarder with 50 cats and armies of miniature gnomes in my flower beds. Because I LOVE small, simple decorative items. Like these little egg shell candles. There is just something so unique and sweet about them. Surprisingly, they are not difficult to make, either! Once you make a few, there are so many beautiful Easter crafts and vignettes in which you can use them, too. I love them!"

Materials List

  • eggs, brown and white
  • candle wax flakes
  • candle wicks
  • hot glue gun
  • toothpicks


  1. You will need several eggs, both brown and white. Break the shells in half and save the yolk and whites in the refrigerator to use for a recipe (I hate to see food go to waste!) Then rinse the shells out thoroughly and put them aside to dry. Once dry, place them in an empty egg carton to keep them stable.

  2. Secure the metal bottoms of the wicks in the shells with a dab of hot glue.

  3. Following the instructions on the container of wax flakes, melt in a glass measuring cup in the microwave. Once completely melted, carefully pour into the egg shells. Use toothpicks to keep the wicks upright and centered while wax is drying.

  4. And that’s how easy it is! Now that I know how simple it is to make them, I can’t wait to try some more creative approaches – such as coloring the wax or dying the shells. But I won’t go too wild… crazy cat lady hoarding visions swimming around in my head.
