DIY Tuesday: Teacup Candles

I love decorating all of my spaces with tons of lights and candles, and always try to find ways to recycle the leftover wax to make them last as long as possible…These super simple and amazing teacup candles are the perfect project for repurposing your old candle wax!

Here’s what you need to do:

Step One: In a small pan set over a larger pan of simmering water, melt down old candles. Remove old wicks with tongs.

Step Two: Cut a piece of wicking to the cup’s height plus 2 inches. Clamp one end to a wick sustainer; tie the other end around a skewer. Dip wicking and sustainer into melted wax to coat them. Remove and stick sustainer to cup’s bottom.

Step Three: Pour in the wax, stopping 1/2 inch below the cup’s rim. Allow wax to set, about 1 hour. And enjoy!
