Hawaiian Luau candles are simple to make and great for summer parties, gifts, or outdoor decorations!
SUPPLIES NEEDED: ￼￼Coconut Shells Votive Wax Wick Scent Blue Candle Coloring (Blocks or Liquid) Artificial Flowers Glue Gun or Glue Dots Vybar 103 (if desired)
Step 1 Attach the wick to the bottom middle of the coconut shell with either hot glue or glue dots.
Step 2 Heat the wax to 180 degrees and add the scent and coloring to the wax. Allow the wax to cool to 150 degrees and pour into the coconut shell until wax is within 1⁄4” from the top of the shell. Be careful not to overflow the wax. To get a ripple affect in the wax that replicates water, add 1 tsp. Vybar per 1 lb. of votive wax.
Step 3 After the candle is cooled you can decorate the coconut shells with the flowers you have picked. You can glue them to the front of the shells with the hot glue or the glue dots. Make sure they are not hanging over the coconut shell near the wicking. This would be a fire hazard.
Have fun and we hope you enjoy making your candles!
