A teacup missing its saucer is practically a flea market freebie! With just a little candle wax, a wick, and some gardenia fragrance oil, it has the potential to be a pretty scented candle for the boudoir. And what a delightful idea for a Mother's Day gift!
You Will Need:Vintage Teacup (3” diameter at top)
Yaley Medium Flat Braid Candle
WickingMicrowaveable Soy Wax
Lavender Fragrance oil (5 drops)
What To Do:Step 1. Cut a 6-inch piece of candle
wicking. Feed through wick clip until end sits just inside. Clamp the wick clip
closed with pliers.
Step 2. Rest a pencil across top of teacup.
Dangle the wick into the teacup and rest the wick clip in the bottom. Tie the
end of the wick to the pencil to hold it in place.
Step 3. Measure 1 cup soy candle flakes into
microwaveable container. Microwave on high 1 minute, then stir with a craft
stick. Heat 1 more minute, till all clear and runny. Add 5 drops of lavender oil
to the melted wax and stir.
Step 4. Pour the wax slowly into the teacup
leaving ¾” at the top – make sure the wick is still centered. Let cool and trim
the wick to one half inch. Let the wax cool. The old-timey style of this teacup
candle looks sweet on a vanity. And smells so good!
