Make A Teacup Candle.x

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
Blu tack
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


Pretty purchases



Recently discovered the lovely clothing line Joules whils’t browsing round the shops in keswick.Summer sales are now on so bargains to be had!

I found the perfect top to wear if it ever sunshines again.Pink with polka dots and quite fitted.I think i might wear it friday night as the bf and I are off out for a meal to celebrate a whole seven years together.Woohoo!

Also bought a cute little tunic top/dress for my nieces 2nd birthday.I think she will look adorable in it.
