You know I like little things. I came across this DIY project on how to make candles with acorn caps. They don’t burn long - 10 to 20 minutes, but they look pretty cute.
How to make the candles:
Remove the caps gently from the acorns.
Melt some beeswax or some scraps from old candles.
Secure the caps in sand, or in this case, pellets.
Pour the wax into the caps with a plastic cup.
Insert the wicks while the wax is still warm.
There you have it - mini candles.
Acorn loves this project! He and Button made some candles for Cattail’s birthday. It was a big hit!
