For my birthday my husband bought me beeswax so we could start making candles. We made our first candles in egg shells. I got the idea from http://childhoodmagic.blogspot.com/. It was an easy process, although we need to tweak a few things the next time we try it. We've been using the candles at dinner and I plan to put some on the nature table come spring (only 10 days away!) I'm hoping to try dipping candles next time, although I need to find a nice tall tin to melt the wax in.
