Single teacup sets (cup and saucer) can be found at flea markets and yard sales.
- 1 cup and saucer
- 1 votive candle
- 1 or more blocks paraffin (or candle stubs
from old candles)
- Double boiler
- Put the votive candle in center bottom of cup. If the candle is taller than the
rim of the cup, use the knife to trim away extra wax from the bottom of the candle.
- Melt one block of paraffin in top of double boiler. Carefully pour melted wax
into cup, allowing wax to surround but not cover candle. Melt more paraffin is more
wax is needed. Straighten the wick if necessary. Let wax harden. Place cup on saucer.
- To give as a gift, set the cup and saucer on plastic wrap or cellophane. Gather
at the top of the cup, and tie with a raffia bow.
