As my glassware collection grows, I’m looking for new ways to put it to use. Locking down fragile items in a cabinet keeps them out of sight and out of mind. I forget that they’re even there. I enjoy my vintage china when it’s out in the open and infusing my home with its sunny, floral charm.
I transformed a vintage Kerr Jelly Glass and a Booths “Chinese Tree” teacup from 1912 into cedarwood vanilla lime candles. When the candles burn out, I’ll remove the remaining wax with a candle warming plate and start the candle making process all over again.
I’m looking forward to making candles with different kinds of wax, essential oils, dyes, and glassware. This project has helped me see my vintage glassware collection in a new light!
NOTE: Please enjoy your candle safely and with common sense. Keep it away from children, pets, and drafts. Only burn the candle when you’re directly in the room with it. Keep the candle away from items that can start on fire. Keep the wax pool clear of any wick trimmings and matches. Trim the wick to 1/4” before each lighting. Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not extinguish it with water.
Thanks for visiting!
