Ice Candles

These are fun to make and relatively simple but they look beautiful
when they’re finished.

Instructions:
Clean out an empty milk carton and tape along the outside/bottom of
it with masking tape to make
the walls stronger so they don’t bow from the weight of the wax. Melt
some paraffin wax to about
140F. Place a taper candle the same height as the candle you want to
make in the center of the
milk carton and fill up the carton with crushed ice. The ice should
hold the taper in place. Place the
carton in a basin of some sort to catch any spilling water as the ice
melts (not in the sink though!).
Slowly pour the wax into the carton until it fills to the top. If the
level of the wax goes down, just add
more wax. When the candle is cool to the touch, hold it over a basin
or tub and peel/cut the milk
carton off the candle. The melted water will gush out so be prepared.
The taper inside the candle
can be replaced when it burns down completely.
