DIY: Vintage Tea Cup Candle

Vintage Tea Cup Candle

Step One:
Gather your materials
-Vintage tea cups with saucers (you can get these anywhere from Etsy to Goodwill to your Grandma's attic)
-Candle wicks (waxed)
-Wooden skewers (8, to hold the wicks in place)
-Heat proof bowl
-Cup with spout (to pour wax)
-500g soy wax
-2g wax dye
-Fragrance oil

Step Two:
"Before getting on with the process make sure you have set up the containers with wicks etc. I first tried to keep the wicks in place with a clothes peg balanced on the rim, but when i poured in the wax, with the slightest movement they changed position. So I placed two skewers on either side of the wick to keep it in place (as in picture)."
Step Three:
"Once the mis en place is intact, heat enough water in a saucepan to come about half way up and bring to a simmer."
Step Four:
"Place the wax in the heat proof bowl (cut them up into smaller pieces if they are in a block, to allow easy and even melting) along with the wax dye and let it slowly melt. 
Use a long wooden skewer to stir in between if needed."
Step Five:
"Once the wax has completely melted, take it off bain marie and keep aside to cool a bit. 
Pour in the fragrance oil at this point, stir with the skewer and slowly pour into the cups till about 3/4th full. If the wicks have moved a bit, don't worry, just readjust. The wax is not going to set immediately. Also, rinse out your utensils quickly."
Step Six:
"Don't move the candles until its completely set. If there is a bit of sinking in the centre, just warm some more wax and fill it up."

DIY: Happy Hay Mason Jar SCENTer Piece

It's cute, it's simple, it's cheap to make and it's smells so good!

Step One:
Gather your supplies.
-Mason jar
-Twine or hay
-Other "fall" themed objects (I got some pumpkins and leaves)
-Scented oil (found it at Walmart with the candles, this is sugar scented)
-Tea light candle (I got pumpkin pie scented)
-Shot glass or small candle holder
-Burlap ribbon
-Stickers for decoration

Step Two:
Fill that jar! Stuff the jar almost full of hay or twine. Get a butter knife or perhaps a long spoon to help really pack it in.

Step Three:
Splash on the scented oil. Pop the top of the oil and pour it into the jar of hay or twine. The twine will soak up the oil and allow it to emanate.

Step Four:
Top it off with the glass with the candle!

Step Five:
Decorate the outside with stickers and burlap. I spelled out AUTUMN in some fun glitter letters.
