Vintage Cup Candles

Standard

imageimageimageI have started work making candles in vintage cups ready for a craft fair in a couple of weeks. I collect, hunt down or otherwise acquire vintage china cups all year round. Each year at this time I fill them with perfumed wax in readyness for Christmas fairs. Over the years the cups have got harder to find at reasonable prices. I suspect that this is because the charity shops have got more savvy on prices and vintage china is more in vogue. Still, it gives me something to hunt for!

I always use Soy wax as it burns with a delightful creamy colour, no soot and a clear bright flame. As well as being Eco friendly. The candle making is time consuming but good to do. This batch I have perfumed with Baby Lavender and my house smells delicious. I will also put some in my Etsy shop over the next few days. Pay me a visit at noddfa.crafts on http://www.etsy.com

I just love the sign in the first picture which I bought for Hubs last Christmas and is so true!  ” The more people I meet the more I love my dog”. I also love the bottle of Schnapps next to it which is a raffle prize to give away!
