We made hand dipped beeswax candles today. 🙂 My parents sent me some beeswax (one block that they already had on hand from another source, and another block that was from their very own beehives).
This was quite the process (especially since I did it the super cautious way… it took longer) and took pretty much the whole morning. As we were waiting for the wax to melt, and during some of the dipping process, the kids watched 2 pioneer movies (Legacy and 17 Miracles) in the living room.
The candles turned out pretty well though and I’m excited to see how they burn in a few days after we let them cure.
