What better way to celebrate the winter then to make snow candles. All you need is beeswax, some candle wick, popsicle sticks and some snow.
While the beeswax is melting prepare your wick by cutting to the desired length. Once the beeswax is melted dip the wick in and straighten. If you buy pre-waxed wick you can skip this step.
Wrap one end of the wick around a popsicle stick as shown in the photos.
Now head outside with your wick and melted beeswax. Create your hole in the snow, we used a mason jar; place the wick into the center of the hole with the popsicle stick supporting the wick over the hole.
Slowly pour in your beeswax. Patiently wait for the wax to set, this will take 5 to 10 minutes, then gently pull your candle from the snow.
Each candle will be slightly different and add a lovely glow to your evening.
