Snow Candles

We finally got around to making snow candles. I've been wanting to do this for so long. We've also gotten better at lighting a candle during dinner so we were in need of some new candles.

First we melted the wax. Then we dug little holes in the snow. I was so sure that when we poured the wax it it would melt the snow and make a huge hole, but nope, the wax began to harden as soon as we poured it in.

Here are the candles beginning to harden.

Our finished products. They are funny shapes, but they turned out great.

Here is one of our candles lit for dinner.
