If you're looking for a fun DIY project to do at home, these homemade beeswax candles offer you the chance to incorporate your love for sushi into your home decor. These beeswax candles deceivingly look like pieces of edible sushi.

These sushi candles are made from rolling up several different colored pieces of beeswax to replicate the look of delicious seafood-filled sushi. The color of the beeswax used pertains to the different sushi ingredients. Black beeswax replicates the seaweed, pink beeswax replicates the spicy crab and white beeswax replicates the sticky rice. The colored strips of wax are rolled together just like sushi is rolled on a bamboo mat. Inside the middle of the sushi candle is a thin white wick so you can enjoy the sweet smell of honey and wax while this sushi candle burns.
