Tutorial Fun - Teacup Candles

After hearing about all the teacups Jess of Epheriell bought at a jumble sale for her succulent garden, I was inspired (actually, challenged, he he) to blog about gorgeous, and practical, teacup candles.  Rather than re-invent the wheel, I am going to share the tutorials which inspired me to create my own teacup candles.

For my candles I used a mix of orphan teacups and small porcelain bowls which I found at my local op shops.  And rather than going out and buying a whole candlemaking kit, I re-melted vanilla candles which I had stored in my "blackout" kit.  So, if you have any beautiful orphan teacups that are feeling a little unloved, why not try one of these tutorials?  I made a bunch of these teacup candles last year and found them to be great for small Christmas presents and teacher appreciation gifts!
