I recently started helping my mother plan her wedding, as luck would have it my friend Paula at TheKnot tapped me to submit DIY tutorials for brides who want to do it themselves.
This recycled teacup soy candle project will be used to decorate the tables at my mothers after party, they are beautiful and may even give you something to do with all of that old china.
Additionally, are great as gifts and fairly inexpensive, its all about how resourceful you are.
Though I used teacups you can also use travel tins like the ones they have at the container store or Altoids tins, they are travel sized and convenient.
Step 1: Supplies
1 pound of Soy wax in flake form ([ Lone star supply)
1 Pyrex measuring cup ( or something similar to Pyrex)
1-3 Recycled Tea cups ( went to Good Will )
1 pack of Candle Wicks
Double sided tape if your making your own wicks
2-6 knives/pencils/chopsticks ( two per container)
Wax Dye (not food coloring, it will clog your wick)
Essential oil or candle Fragrance
