How to Make a Hurricane Candle Shell

Even Out the Top
Topping Off

Topping off the Shell

David Fisher
Put a piece of foil into a cookie sheet or frying pan, and warm the pan over a low heat. Turn the shell upside down and gently touch it to the hot foil, being careful to keep it level. This will melt the uneven edges of the shell and give you a nice even, level top. If there are big lumps or irregularities on the bottom or the sides of the inside of the candle, you can gently scrape those off with a knife. You want to make sure that the votive candle will sit level inside the bottom of the hurricane shell.
