I have another incredibly easy and cheap DIY project to share with you today. It is this cute little teacup candle. Here is a short tutorial with pictures. This project was so simple and only cost me $1.98!
Gather your supplies. I used a candle that I already had, the wick from that candle, a candle warmer to melt the wax (no need for a fancy double broiler and thermometer), and my thrift store teacup.
First, go ahead and pull the wick out of the candle. All you have to do is take the sticker off of the bottom of the candle to expose the metal disc and pull it out.
Next, I put the candle in a glass container and stuck it on the candle warmer. It can take a while to melt depending on the size/shape of your container and candle. I put it on in the morning and went about my day.
Once a little wax is melted dip the wick in to it and then place it in the middle of the cup. This will help the wick stay straight (mostly) when you start pouring the rest of the wax in.
Once the wax is melted get your teacup and get ready to pour it in. I grabbed a pot holder just in case, but didn’t really need it.
Start pouring! Pour until the teacup is nearly full.
I stopped filling mine at this point.
Now just trim the wick and wait for it to set.
I am pleased with how it turned out. This was such a simple, quick, cheap project and I am sure I will make more. I think these would make wonderful gifts as well.
