As usual, I have sought the easiest and cutest project to share with you!  These are super easy and cute Easter votives.  My husband bought some tealight candles on clearance for $1/100 of them, yeah!  Right away I knew I had to make a project with them.  So here it is:

 Gather your supplies

1. ~ 6 eggs
2. ~ Food coloring (any color you like)
3. ~ Vinegar
4. ~ 1 tablespoon bleach
5. ~ 2-4 coffee cups
6. ~ 1 3 quart bowl or larger
2. Crack the eggs around the middle and empty the contents of the egg in a separate bowl (if you want to use the eggs).

3. Rinse the egg shells in a mixture of 8 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of bleach then allow to dry on paper towels.

4. Once the egg shells are dry, dye them in a mixture of 6 oz water, 1 tsp white vinegar, and 6-12 drops of food coloring. Allow the eggs to soak in the color mixture for 5-10 minutes depending on the amount of color you would like.

5. Set the egg shells up-side down on paper towels to dry.

6. Once they are dry set them on a small dot of clay that you have pushed down in the middle to hold the egg shell. Then set the tea light candle inside the egg shell. LIGHT THE CANDLE ♥

  1. This is an interesting idea. I have never seen egg shells made into votives before! I remember my mom blowing out egg shells and making something with them when I was a kid..but it wasn’t a votive!
