Tea Cup Candle

I have been eyeing up this DIY for awhile now and finally put aside a little time to do it… I am seriously IN LOVE with how it turned out! My in-laws are moving back home from being out of state for several years and I thought this would be a great little house warming gift because my mother-in-law is super into shabby chic. Actually, I like these so much I’m considering making a bunch more and giving them out for Christmas gifts this year.

I think you’ll really love this DIY, too. It’s inexpensive, not at all time-consuming, and would be easy to customize. I got the majority of the items at the dollar store, with the exception of the tea cup. I got that from a resale shop. Altogether this DIY cost me under $5 and took around 30 minutes from start to finish, plus dry time.

Materials:
-Tea Cup
-Candle
-Oven Mitts
-Funnel
-Glass Bowl
-Boiling Pot

Directions:
-Fill pot half full with water and bring to a soft boil.
-Remove wick from candle. Place wick upright in the center of the tea cup.
-Cut candle into smaller pieces and place pieces in the glass bowl.
-Boil wax until it turns to clear liquid.
-Use oven mitts to safely remove glass bowl and funnel to pour wax into tea cup.
-Let stand for several hours to cool and settle.
