Up cycled China Cup Candle Holders...

Do you love upcycling?

Turning something old into something new?

Taking something you do not use and making it useable again?

If so, you will like today's post (I hope!)

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?

And candle holders are always much needed.

How To Upcycle Some Old Cups And Saucers In Minutes: Upcycled China Cup Candle Holders:

Take some old cups and saucers. Old, odd, sets or even chipped ones.

 Matching sets or odd sets.

Mix and match.

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

Make sure they fit nicely though, especially if you are going to light the candles.

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

How fun!?

If you plan to lite the candles I would stick the cup and saucers together with super glue as you do not want them to move when lit. 

If just for display they will be OK like this in case you change your mind and want to start using them again.

How sweet!?

Do you like it?

Do you like to recycle, upcycle and reuse old glass jars?

I love to upcycle glass jars and Hartley’s Jam has kindly let me share some of their recycled jar ideas today. How cool can you make an old jam jar look with add flowers and planting bulbs into them?

5 Ways To Upcycle Old Jars:

Glass jars are among my favourite things to up-cycle along with clothes and shoes!

The great thing with glass jars and bottles is that you can always pick up something a little different and they make the best things to upcycle.

Upcycling is good fun and my Daughter is always interested in learning how to make some old into something new and different. 

Also, the possibilities are endless, you just need an idea to start with.
