Orange Lantern Craft DIY
This simple craft was not only fun to make, but also delicious! To make your own, you will need an orange or clementine, prepared candle wick, craft knife or mini cutters, beeswax pellets, and melting pot or pan for melting wax. Start by pressing mini cutters into the orange or carving a design with a craft knife. Cut the top off of the orange. Carefully scoop out the orange flesh and eat! While the orange dries out a bit, begin melting the beeswax. When melted, allow to cool slightly until wax starts to look cloudy. Pour a small puddle into the bottom of the orange. Press the base of the wick into the melted wax and hold until set. Using a skewer or pencil across the orange, rest the wick against it to keep straight. Pour more beeswax into the orange being sure not to pour past the design you carved into the skin. Allow to cool for several hours, then trim wick to approximately one inch. Light and enjoy the bright glow and festive fragrance! Depending on the size of your orange, as it burns down, you may need to trim around some of the skin to prevent burning. Always supervise lit candles.
