Ice Candles Recipe
These are fun to make and relatively simple but they look
beautiful when they're finished.
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.
