That's not true. I'm sure many interesting people get bored sometimes. That's just the phrase we would use when our children would say, "I'm bored". What does this have to do with what I'm about to show? I don't know. Anyhow, we were snowed in over the weekend. The media called it "an epic storm". Thirty-plus inches. And guess what? We're in the midst of a second one, promising twenty-four more inches on top of that. What should we do? I know - let's make snow candles. I read about them somewhere a long time ago. And if I could honestly remember where, I'd give credit, or at least ask, "Hey, what did I do wrong?"
To make snow candles, you will need:
candle wicks (you can buy them in a craft store)...
Make depressions in the snow using a small bowl. Place the wicks in the center.
Melt some old candle stubs. You must use a double boiler for this - wax is flammable and cannot be placed directly on the burner.
I used a chopstick to fish out the old wicks from the recycled candles.
Pour the melted wax into your snow cups.
Let them sit in the snow for at least an hour.
When I fished them out of the snow, I found these oddly shaped wax islands. So I floated them in a bowl of water. Pretty, aren't they? Pretty ridiculous - sorry, I was bored...
