These adorable tea cup candles are an incredibly fun project to make! Use existing teacups, or have fun searching for new cups at thrift and antique stores. Fragranced with Lavender Green Tea and Earl Grey Lemon Fragrance Oils, these candles will fill your room with wonderfully fresh aromas!
This kit includes:
ONE: Split the EcoSoya Wax into 2 heatsafe containers. Each container should have about 8 oz. each.
TWO: Melt the wax in the microwave on 30 second bursts.
THREE: Dip the bottom of the wicks into the wax and then place them in the teacups. Allow the wax to dry for 10 - 15 minutes. It will act as a glue to keep your wicks in place when you finally pour.
FOUR: In one container, add shavings of the Royal Violet Wax Dye Block and 1 oz. of the Lavender Green Tea Fragrance Oil. If your wicks are securely fashioned to the bottom of the cups, slowly pour the rest of the wax. You’ll have enough wax to make two candles of each color, depending on how big your teacups are.
FIVE: In a second container, add shavings of the Red Wax Dye Block and 1 oz. of Earl Grey Lemon Fragrance Oil. Just like in step 4, be sure your wicks are securely fashioned to the bottom of the tea cups and then pour the wax.
SIX: If you need to, you can stabilize the wick by placing two chopsticks or wooden reeds on either side of the wick to keep it from falling over.
SEVEN: Allow your candles to dry for 3 - 4 hours and then enjoy!
