Easter decorations made from egg packaging

Have you ever thought about making candles out of egg shells as the perfect base for your Easter decorations? Nestled in an egg carton and decorated with decorative natural materials, you can easily create an Easter eye-catcher for your table, console or windowsill.

You need:
Egg Carton
Washed out Eggshell Halves


That's how it works:
Step 1:
 Carefully wash the eggshell halves.
Step 2:
Glue a wick into each half of the bowl and hold it in place in the center with the wick holder.
Step 3:
Melt soy wax in a water bath and then carefully pour it into the eggshells.
Step 4:
After the wax has hardened, you can use the bottom of an egg packaging with the finished egg candles as well as e.g Decorative eggs, feathers and decorate with moss.



Have fun imitating!
