Making a teapot candle…

1.  Buy a cheap candle and cut it up into pieces. Keep cutting until you have the wick separated. Put the wick aside!  You can buy wax but it tends to cost more. I used a cookie dough scented candle from Michaels.

2. Place wax pieces in pot on medium heat. Uh, do not leave this unattended. Stir regularly.15 005

Also… candles are often only coloured on the outside so once you cut into it you’ll see how it’ll end up. My original candle was yellow-ish but the inside was white so once it dried, it just looked white.
