Teacup Candles

These adorable, hand-crafted candles can be made in a vintage teacup or coffee mug, whichever is your mother’s beverage of choice.  Perhaps hosting a tea party in honor of your mother and having these as a guest favour or simply part of the table décor might be a nice way to honor that special woman in your life.  Nevertheless, mom is sure to appreciate that they were hand made by you.
