I haven't gotten all the things done that I hoped on the weekend, but today I finally made the teacup candles that I saw in Martha Stewart's magazine last year!
I picked the teacups up at yard sales this summer and cut store-bought cafe candles to the right size because I didn't have any place to buy wicks around here. These candles were about $4.00 for a box of 20, I think. Then, I melted the remainder of the cut candle , along with ends of scented pillar candles, in a 9" pie plate over a pot of boiling water. I poured the melted wax in the cup around the candle and added a teabag tag with a heart stamped on it. I will give these to pre-school teachers for Christmas.
