I collected these shells myself from Hampton Beach. Going to the beach is fun- the water looks beautiful, it's peaceful, and there are no tourists around to steal all the shells before I get to them!

I cleaned the shells, but they still retain that salty ocean smell. :)

I melted down some candle stubs I had in my house, and put some new wicks in the shells, and then poured the wax right in!

I have seen people spray paint the shells gold and silver before pouring the wax in, but I wanted a natural motif.
