Step 5: Add color

Wait until wax is at 150 degrees Now stir 15-20 drops of wax coloring if desired
About how much does each cost, would you say? (If you don't include the price of the cup or other container.)
Oh my, I ADORE these! Not only do I love candles, but I collect teacups! However, I will certainly be stopping by Goodwill. These will make fabulous gifts! My only concern is the cost of wax. Where did you find yours and how much was it, if you don't mind my asking?<br />
Good soy wax isn't always the cheapest...but it's worth it. It lasts longer that most other waxes too.<br><br>http://www.lonestarcandlesupply.com/candlewax/index.html<br>http://www.brambleberry.com/Wax-C21.aspx
Love this idea! I started doing this when I found a ton of cute clear glass teacups at a thrift store and bought like ten. I didn't know yet what I wanted to do with them.<br><br>I've used some as tealight holders, one as a scuttle, and several have turned into candles like this!<br><br>Great idea, thanks!
Awesome!!!!! I love it! I have to make one now! If I ever get around to it (my life has too much going on already) I'll post a pic here. Great work!!!
