Make these tea-time treasures using dainty teacups filled with candle wax and sprinkled with a dusting of glitter.
1. Put hot water into the teacups to warm them as the wax is melting. Melt the wax in a coffee can setting the can in a pan of water on the stove or hot plate.
2. Color the wax using old colored candles, or purchased candle coloring, if desired. Remove the wax from the heat. Pour the hot water out of the cups and dry thoroughly. Carefully pour the wax into the cups and let them set until a soft covering appears on top of the wax (about two or three minutes).
3. Push a birthday candle into the wax and steady it until it stands up straight. Add glitter to the top of the wax. After the candle is completely burned, the cup can be washed in very hot water to remove the wax residue.
