How to make the prettiest Easter egg candles

Simple pleasures: This easy craft turns empty eggshells into pretty decorative candles

Easter egg candles

These candles, which are a cinch to pull off, will light up any brunch table or spring mantel. Melt shredded wax in a metal container (an old can works well) over a double boiler and pour into empty eggshells. When wax is partly set (three to five minutes), insert a small birthday candle, trimmed to size. Display them grouped together in egg cups or even napkin rings.
