I had a jar candle that was in danger of burning my table. Also, last week I cleaned out my China cabinet and had many single tea cups I didn't know what to do with.
So, being a Hometalk crafter, I just HAD to do this!
Since the candles had been burning and were liquified, I took a pot holder and poured it into a tea cup.
I then took tongs to grab the wick out.
Since the tea cup was deeper than what was in the jar because of the size change, I waited for it to set up a bit before pushing it into the semi hardened wax.
I figure it will sink as it melts and burns.
If not I'll remelt it and get a wick.
Now I have really adorable candles and don't have to get rid of my tea cups!
From now on I will do this with my low burning jar candles.
It took almost no time at all and was completely free!
These things cost a fortune in specialty shops.
