diy: teacup candle
Afternoon lovely brides-to-be! For all you creative ladies planning a vintage-inspired wedding this post is for you! You might remember Ariane and David’s beautiful and calm vintage-inspired beach wedding featured a few weeks ago? It was packed full of gorgeous handmade details created by artistic bride Ariane, including pebble place settings, flower arrangements and ever-so-sweet teacup candles which Ariane is sharing with us today!
You will need:
Beeswax (from sustainable source)
Teacup and Saucer (vintage)
1 x Pan (old)
An old jar or Coffee Can (the taller the better)
Pair of scissors
1. Fill the Pan with water and bring to the boil. Put beeswax into the jar and both into the boiling water.
2. Place wick into the middle of the Teacup. Keep the prepared teacup close to the melting wax.
3. As soon as the wax is completely melted pour immediately into the cup. Remember to be quick, the wax hardens rather quickly when taken off the heat.
4. Wait for the wax to cool completely and cut wick to size. About 1cm above the wax.
That’s it. As easy as that you can add a nice and romantic touch to your wedding decoration and it’s better value then candles from the shops!
