Woah!! I apologize for Halfway to Harmony being so quiet lately.... saying life has been busy could be an understatement. But I'll take busy when it is doing the things that I love. The one thing missing though has been updating my blog and let me tell you I have missed it so much! I am making it a goal now to start it back up on a regular schedule (yay!) so keep checking back! I am even more excited to share some of the things I have been up to.
In recent months, I have been working a lot with O'Neill Women's, especially on their blog. With each season, the clothing there is getting cuter and cuter...think Free People with a beachy twist...I want everything!! Anyways, I have an exciting recent collaboration to share later this week, but right now I hope you enjoy this seashell candle DIY. I have mine on my bedside table, and it adds the perfect touch to my room, especially when lit! I added a Halway to Harmony twist though to this DIY... if the beach vibe isn't your thing opt for a vintage teacup (I got mine at Goodwill for a couple dollars)!
Check out your DIY below! It feels great to be back!
Step One: Plug in your hot glue gun and glue the metal bottom of the wick to the middle of the shell.
Step Two: Fill up the larger of the two pots with a couple inches of water. Put it on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Step Four: Once the wax has completely melted, spread old newspaper by the stove with the shell on top. pour the hot wax slowly into the center of the shell. Fill only to the top of the shell, so that no wax spills out.
Step Five: Once the candle has completely cooled, cut the wick so that about 3/4 inch is above the wax.

If you have some extra wax, or want to something different, use a vintage teacup. Follow all the same steps as above!
