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.

FabFitFun – My newest subscription addiction!!! I decided to treat myself to this subscription just in time for the fall box and seriously love what I got. Yes, it’s a pricier box but I honestly love almost every single item that was included and think it is more than worth the money.

White Pumpkin Candle – It’s a pumpkin candle… I mean, need I say more?! #Swoon

Rampage Glasses – I had an eye exam this month, upped my prescription, and got these babies. I love the cat eye shape and gold metallic finish. They go great with any outfit and are super comfortable to wear.

Village Naturals Therapy Aches and Pains Foaming Bath Salts – As the weather gets colder and colder I find myself taking more and more baths. This has been my favorite add-in when I want to relax in the tub lately. Smells great and you can’t beat the price! My husband  bought this for me last year around this time and I’m just now about to finish it up.

Mirabella Velvet Lip Pencil – Red lips have seriously been on repeat for me this month and this lippie has been my go-to. The pigmentation is incredible and it wears so nicely and comfortably.
