Seashell Candles
Today I was suppose to talk about my Favor Bags items, but I was swept off my feet by this fabulous project that I came across at Martha's Web Site and since it fits my theme so perfect I couldn't wait:) and..... I had all the ingredients!

Note: Double Boiler - is large pot half full with boiling water and a smaller pot inside where you are doing the melting.

This is so awesome! Is it safe to assume that they're reusable, too?
