As i wrote earlier i have a bit of an obsession with vintage teacups which i love to hunt around for in charity shops and car boots.I started making them as gifts for family and friends( whether they wanted them or not!) and eventually started selling them at craft fairs and a friends tea shop.I must say if i can make them anyone can.:)
You will need..
A large pan and a smaller sauce pan
an old fork to stir
Soy wax flakes
Pre-waxed wick with a metal base
Two Long matches or old difuser reeds
Scented oil to fragrance if desired
A pretty teacup
1) Gently melt the wax flakes ( 2 teacups full worth for one teacup candle) in a small sauce pan inside a larger pan of hot water.
2) whil’st melting the wax attach the prewaxed wick to the bottom of your teacup with a small piece of blu-tack.
3)Put a match or difuser reed each side of the wick to hold it in place.
4)Add a few drops of scented oil into the melted wax to fragrance.Ive chosen red cherry.
5) Pour the melted wax into the teacup.Leave to cool and set for a couple of hours.
Voila! A beautiful teacup candle!
Have fun making yours and remember you can easily reuse or refill after burning it.X
