Renegade Dipped Candles

Energy & Sustainability

My husband is on an epic 3 week snowboarding road trip. He’s been dropping 20 foot cliffs at 12,000 feet with his brother and friend, and living the life of a ski bum. So, what do three dudes do when they are out on the road, free from life’s responsibilities? Make hand dipped beeswax candles, of course!
They started by drinking, then cutting the top off of, a Pabst Blue Ribbon can. Then they wired it to the handles of a stock pot to keep it suspended in water, because it’s cruical not to let the container holding the melted wax come in direct contact with the heat. Each perfect pair of candles was hung on the back of the stove, with a nice layer of foil to keep things clean. So crafty, bro!
