You’re having a backyard barbecue tomorrow, but mosquitoes are not on the guest list. Sure, you could buy those citronella candles in giant metal pails from the grocery store, or you could adorn your patio table with these adorable homemade lemon candles we found on Twine and Table. Here’s how to make 'em.
Step 1: Cut each lemon in half and then scoop out the pulp so the peel becomes an empty cup.
Step 2: Break the beeswax into pieces and heat it in a double boiler, stirring until it melts. (Don’t forget to add water to the bottom of the boiler first.)
