Up cycled China Cup Candle Holders...


Are you looking for an easy way to up-cycle some old china cups and saucers? I don't think it gets much easier than this?


Take some old cups and saucers.

 Matching or odd sets.


Some big chunky candles that would fit nicely on a saucer.


Turn your cup upside down, place the saucer on top and candle on top of that!


If you plan to lite the candles I would stick the cup and saucers together with super glue as you don't want them to move when lit. If just for display they will be OK like this in case you change your mind.


How sweet!?

  6. I love this idea! My mother has quite a few tea cups and saucers in her cabinet that are just collecting dust. I wanted to use them to make candles out of them (as in melt wax inside) BUT your brilliant idea is easier, prettier, and more affordable. Thanks for linking this up-cycling project on Happiness is Homemade.
