Soy Candle Cups

I'm not somebody who consideres myself "crafty" in any shape or form.  I look on in wonder at women who make and bake and craft their way through life, but after applying for one particular fair and being turned down because my items were not handmade I thought "right, I'll show them ! "  and decided to have a go at making some candle cups.  How hard could it be ?  It wasn't !  in fact, it was possibly the simplest thing I have ever done.



I'm really pleased with the results of my first attempt.  Many more to follow.

  1. They look gorgeous - well done. Have you thought about writing a book? 'How not to be beaten' by Karen Jones!

  3. You crafty bugger! The teacups look great and would make a wonderful present. Also a fantastic solution to a setless single cup and saucer.

  6. midlife and Ruth Just so you know I haven't gone back TOOOOOO much on what I said previously these are made from minature cups and saucers which were for decorative purposes in the first place :) Actually the white ones are from a French child's tea set ! Arggh I know, I did agonise before committing to candles, but at least they can eventually be washed out with no harm done xxx

  15. So pretty - but I think I'd be far too lazy, and will continue to keep the shops of Totnes in business with my obsessive scented candle habit!!
