Beautiful DIY Beach Gel Candles that Capture Sea and Sand

Gel candles bring the beach to your home like no other type of candles.

The gel captures your sand, shells, seaglass, and other beach finds in place and creates the illusion of an under water scene. You can use clear or blue gel wax, even add a scent.
