Go to Home Depot, buy a wide piece of PVC, cut it to the length of a candle. Drizzle a couple little strings of hot glue from the top to imitate wax drippings. Once the hot glue is really dry, paint it all with either spray paint, or acrylic - your choice. Fill the hole with expanding foam in a can - (otherwise known as Great Stuff brand) and stick a battery operated tea light in the top of the foam (before it dries) for a fake flame. It wont be a working candle obviously, but it will give you the same look, without worry of melting. :)

The same thing happened to some candles in lanterns on my front porch. I found some small glass vases at the dollar store that were the perfect size and just slid the candles in there. Next time it got hot the candles just melted to the shape of the glass. It worked perfectly! Love the shells too, I'm a big fan of beachy things. Love your blog!
