Candle making is fun, simple and easy. I didn’t realise this until my daughter and I got around to making them one Sunday afternoon. Then a few weeks later we invited a posse of her friends over for a candle making session. Now the thought of a group of giggly hyperactive eight-year-olds in the vicinity of hot wax is daunting for even the toughest of mothers, but this worked out very well. It really did!
The candles were set in gorgeous vintage teacups which I bought for a song at a charity shop. Having these vintage teacups meant the girls could keep their projects for always – and just top them up when the wax runs out. Looking back it seems like the day, the memories, and the skills learnt will be preserved for always in these teacups.
I’ve prepared a party planner and tutorial (including photos) to make a scented candle in a teacup, which you can download for free here. And if you go ahead and have a candle making party using this handy planner and tutorial, please do let me know how you all get along.
