I was reminded of beeswax candles in egg shells by Over the Crescent Moon. I haven't made these without help before, so this was new. The process was much more simple than I remembered... but there were quite a few tricks to it that I learned today.
Blow out eggs. Wash them out with water, and allow them to dry for at least 24 hours in the sun to prevent any bacteria from staying in side the shell.
Use a double boiler to melt the beeswax.
(I have to find a trick to get the wax out of my measuring cup next.)
Carefully place a wick in each egg. It doesn't really matter if they stay up strait. The wax helps with that once it is in the egg shell.
Once the beeswax is melted, using something you can throw away (in our case, cardstock and tape) make a funnel.
Put the funnel in the egg shell next to the wick and pour a VERY small amount of wax in the bottom of the egg to close up the hole. Let that cool for at least an hour so it is good and hard before you pour the rest of the wax in (we did a botany lesson and then came back to it).
Fill the eggs carefully with the melted wax and move the wick to the spot you think would work best. Use the hole in the egg as a guide if you need to. The wick should have a bit of wax on it by this time to help it stick.
Allow to cool naturally. If you put them in the fridge, they will crack (ask me how I know). When you are done, you should be able to peel the egg shell away rather easily, and you have an egg shapped beezwax candle!
