A quirky take on the vintage teacup candle
A soy vanilla candle with eco-friendly wick, poured into a vintage ice cream glass and finished with a funky umbrella straw.
Wash and thoroughly dry a glass jar in preparation.
Place a pre-waxed wick into the jar and balance a wooden skewers or chopstick on either side of the wick, taping them together at both ends to keep the wick secure.
Gently melt soy wax flakes in a saucepan, stirring until fully liquid. Using a food thermometer heat the wax to approximately 65 degrees (check your particular brand for the exact temperature).
Carefully pour the wax into the jar, avoiding the wooden sticks. Be very careful as the wax is hot.
Leave it to set - overnight is best.
Once set, remove the wooden sticks and pop a drinking straw with an umbrella in it onto the wick for decoration.
