Teacups with saucers make the world more ladylike and dainty and thus brilliant. If you combine teacups and saucers and candles you get either a tea party waiting for a place to happen or these:
Teacup Candles! Guest blogger Kate over at Design*Sponge made these lovely little fellows. So cute, and I think they might be what ModHomeEcTeacher was talking about in her post about repurposing thrift store stuff to make gifts.
Here's what you'll need to make them:
- teacups (saucers optional) - Kate got hers from thrift stores
- wax - she used microwaveable soy wax
- candle wicks (at least 1″ taller than your cup)
- candle scent or dye (optional)
- microwaveable container
- hot glue gun
They look dead simple to make, head over here for the rest of the skinny. I was thinking that a pair of these, a few Cupcakes Soaps and some fancy tea might make a nice present.
