Have a few chipped teacups hanging around? So do we. That's why we were happy to see this idea, which gives vintage teacups a sweet second life by turning them into candleholders. These would make a fab hostess gift, don't you think?

What you'll need:

Teacups (saucers optional)
Soy Wax (microwavable is easiest to use)
Candle Wicks
Hot Glue Gun

What to do:

1. Clean the teacup thoroughly and let dry.
2. Glue a wick to the center/base of the teacup.
3. Melt your wax following the directions on the packaging.
4. Pour the wax into your teacup - you can adjust the wick to make sure it is straight.
5. Wait for the wax to solidify.
6. You're done!
