How to Make a Vintage Teacup Candle

April 15, 2014

I’m a little late with Making Monday this week, so we’ll just call it Making Tuesday today! This week I have a tutorial for one of my favourite vintage makes. I’ve been making teacup candles for years, long before they were popular. Back in the days when you could still buy vintage teacups in every charity shop for £1!

The teacups may be harder to find but the candle is just as easy as ever. These only take a few minutes to make and are perfect as little gifts or as a beautiful thing to enjoy in your home.

So here’s my little guide to making them…

The teacup I used in the video was one of a set of four which I picked up a couple of weeks ago at a car boot sale. I like mismatched china so I’m going to keep one for drinking tea and use the others for crafts. The great thing about these candles is that once you’ve finished burning them you can still re-use the cup.

All the stuff I used can be bought at Hobby craft.

I used…

Candle Wax Pellets – £9.49

Candle Wicks – £2.49

Candle Scents – £6.49

Please let me know if you give this one a go. If you have any tutorials you’d like to see on the blog please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

    This candle is so wonderfully pretty! I can’t help but thin that a number of these used as part of the tablescape (or elsewhere in the decor) would be amazing for a wedding (especially a vintage and/or shabby chic style one).

    What a delightful post and video! You are a natural at YouTube! I had no idea making a candle in a teacup was so easy. I might have to try that soon

    Thanks doll,
