DIY Teacup Candles

by Emma Arendoski

Happy Saturday! What’s that, you say? Fresh posts at EB? Why, yes – of course! Does your wedding planning come to a screeching halt because it’s the weekend? We didn’t think so! And, neither do we. Besides, we’re quite obsessed and it’s only natural to post as much as possible. ;)

If you’ve been an avid reader of EB (p.s. thanks + we love you) you may be aware that I (Emma here!) am in love with teacups. I frequent thrift shops, estate sales, and garage sales searching for the next perfect teacup to add to my collection. One problem? There are not nearly enough opportunities to show off the teacup collection. Today, however, we’re fixing that problem with a DIY to incorporate your chic collection AND a romantic centerpiece idea for your wedding. With a few supplies, you can make these darling DIY teacup candles – via Georgica Pond – for next to nothing using thrift store, garage sale, or estate sale teacups. Make meaningful candles for the head table by using teacups passed down from your grandmother.

Beautiful idea!!

This is a cute idea, but why would you fill such beautiful teacups with wax?? I’d use plain white cups. lol

They are beautiful! At least the wax doesn’t damage it, though… you could always burn it and clean out the excess wax if you don’t want it to be a candle anymore. No harm done! :)

I absolutely love this idea! I’ve never made candles before, but this seems easy and cute for novices!

I think I might make some for the holidays this year! Thrift store vintage teacups + wax = easy gift idea!
