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.

  • 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
  • thermometer

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.
