Clementine Candle

Mar 23, 2011

Dis­cov­ered this fun project while doing some “research” once again on Pin­ter­est. And since Clemen­tines are out right now I thought I would share my find with you. If you want to impress the lit­tle ones you need to try this but don’t even both­er on the teenagers as frankly I think there is very lit­tle you can do to impress them at the moment. I just got a cool and then that look. You know the one that says, “Like real­ly mom, is this what you did all day”. Do you know what look I am talk­ing about?

Sup­plies Need­ed: Clemen­tine, Olive Oil, Knife, Match­es

  • Using a knife care­ful­ly cut all around the Clemen­tine hor­i­zon­tal­ly. You want to cut just enough so you feel the meat part of the Clemen­tine with the knife.


  • Now care­ful­ly peel the Clemen­tine top and bot­tom halves off. To get start­ed I gen­tly pushed my fin­ger in between the inside of the Clemen­tine and the rind and ran it all around the Clemen­tine until I got to the bot­tom. When you peel the halves off make sure when you to get the “wick part” of the Clemen­tine you do not pull it off of the rhine. You want it to remains as long as pos­si­ble. This is be the part of the Clemen­tine that has the area where the stem was attached to the Clemen­tine.

  • When you peel off the two halves they should look like the pho­to above. Oh and I had to share a few pieces of my Clemen­tine with Chiefie… he thinks I’m won­der­ful and is total­ly impressed with my can­dle.

  • Fill the bot­tom por­tion of your can­dle (has the wick part) with olive oil just so the wick sticks above the oil a bit. Now let the oil absorb into the wick. It took about 5 min. for mine. Using a knife care­ful­ly cut a star on the top that does not have the wick. You need to make yours larg­er than mine as the heat start­ed to burn mine as you can see with the pho­to.

This pho­to is not the best but you get the idea of what it looks like in the dark. LOL, it kin­da looks like a glow­ing sea urchin but remem­ber you are impress­ing the lit­tle ones not the teenagers. Have fun.
