Rose-scented teacup candles

You will need
teacup and saucer
beeswax
pre-waxed wire wick with a base
liquid rose candle scent
2 old pans, one larger than the other 
old plastic jug

Directions
Put the wick base inside a clean, dry teacup. If the wick will not stand up, you may wish to use a blob of molten wax to stick the wick base in place.

Quarter fill a large saucepan with cold water. Place the wax into a smaller pan, and then place it inside the large pan. Gently bring the water to the boil and simmer on a low heat until the wax melts.

When the wax becomes molten, add a few drops of rose scent.

Once the wax has melted completely, pour it into an old plastic jug. Then carefully pour into the teacup and leave to cool, ensuring the wick is still standing up straight.


Tip
Charity shops and boot sales are full of odd cups and saucers at bargain prices.
