This kit contains everything you need (except an old tea cup and a couple of old saucepans) to make a tea coloured container candle. This is the ideal way to have a go at candle making at very low expense.

Candle making offers you the enjoyment both of making the candles and then savouring their soothing light for up to 20 hours per candle. Or, of course, you might want to make them as gifts, for charity fund raising or, even, as the first step into your own candle making business.

This kit contains:

You can also see Kev make these candles by looking at the product video (scroll down this page).

Fancy treating yourself to an upgrade?

Just select the option at the top (above the "add to cart" button) and we'll send you double the wax, more wick, more tabs and more dye - enough to make two cup of tea candles. You can also choose to add a discounted candle making scent - 15ml is enough to make two-three candles! (Note - this is supplied in a 30ml bottle so it'll be half full).

If you want to make multiple 'cup of tea' candles, please have a look at our larger container candle kits. We have a kit which will allow you to make 2-3 container candles, or our bulk kits make around 20 or 40 tea cup candles - depending on tea cup size. These kits offer better value for making candles in quantity.

All you need to supply is a small, heat-proof container such as an old tea cup or small jar, plus a couple of old saucepans for melting the wax in.

Note: tea-cup not included! To keep costs down, this product comes in a plastic bag which is then put in a jiffy bag for posting. This kit will be despatched using second class post if ordered on its own.

    Ridiculously easy, wonderfully creative

    Posted by Amy on 6th Feb 2015

    An upcycler by nature, I have until recently steered away from what I thought to be information and equipment-heavy crafts such as candle making.

    I bought this kit on a whim; it seemed an unintimidating way to put one toe in the water, so to speak. The kit is so delightfully simple and comprehensive that after making my teacup candle I went a little order crazy.....I now have 3 cheery teacups, 8 beeswax (I can also recommend the mini beeswax kit as a lovely treat, no other equipment required) and I am shortly going to see if I can manage to make a respectable pillar candle. To be honest, I'm a little dubious about getting that one right, but I'm drunk on teacup success.

    I think this kit will remain my favourite, since it is not only simple but charming....and with the right teacup, it just can't help but make you feel cheerful.

    Christmas presents

    I bought the micro Cup of Tea candle making kit, made a gift for my mum, loved it so bought the kit to fill 10 containers. I chose the cinnamon scent. I will definitely use your products again. I must try the beeswax :)

    Simple as ABC

    I have never made candles before and this was the first one I tried. Simple instructions and very easy to make. It is now sitting on my mantlepiece for everyone to see.

    So easy!

    Posted by Anne-Marie on 1st Oct 2014

    I must admit, I was nervous to try this. So much so, I left it until the night before I was due to give it as a birthday present. But the time came, and it had to be done.
    Oh! Why did I worry so much? It was so easy to do.
    I used a lemon scent as I hoped it would also help with a 16 year old whilst revising. Aromatherapy books (and the TV programme QI) talk about the properties of lemon for aiding revision.
    So anyone with those dreaded GCSE looming, why not make your own cup of lemon tea????
