Teacup Lights from Martha Stewart

I think these would make a great gift to give a friend.
Teacup Lights Antique teacups that have lost their saucers still make sweet gifts when fitted with candles. Tools and MaterialsNested pansPartially burned candlesCandy or candle thermometerTongsNew wickingTeacupsWick sustainersWooden skewers Teacup Lights How-To1. In a small pan set over a larger pan of simmering water, melt down old candles; clip the thermometer to the upper pot, and keep temperature at about 185 degrees. Remove old wicks with tongs. 2. 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. 3. Pour in the wax, stopping 1/2 inch below the cup's rim. Allow wax to set, about 1 hour. The candle will harden with a well in the center. To even it out, use another skewer to prick a circle of holes about 1/16 inch deep around the wick. Pour in melted wax until surface is 1/4 inch below rim. Cut wick.

What a fab idea!!! Thanks for sharing Gina! This give me an excuse to go out in search of old tea cups. Kate - the fact that you found one at Anthropologie makes this more appealing to me. Sad, but true.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
However just imagine if you added some great visuals or
video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.
Very good blog!
