Product Description


This kit enables you to create up to 20 tea-cup sized container candles**. You provide the containers for this kit (eg tea cups) and will burn for up to 20 hours at around £1.50 each! This kit is ideal for:

  • Wedding table decorations
  • Wedding favours
  • School candlemaking
  • Making candles to sell for profit or charity
  • ...and many other bulk production purposes

Because container candles don't require the use of moulds (just basic kitchen equipment, containers and the contents of this kit) they are ideal for creating lots of candles quickly, simply and with consistent results.

The kit contains:

  • 3KG Container Wax
  • 3 metres wick
  • 25 wick tabs (5 spares)
  • 30g dye - have one, two or three colours
  • Instructions

Candle Scent

You can add candle scent to your order, at a discount, by selecting from the options above.

You can select up to three scents, supplied in quantities of 50ml each - enough to scent around 1KG wax (depending on how strong you like your scent to be). So, if you want to scent all your candles then pick two or three.


Important: this kit does not include containers - it's intended for those occasions where you already have containers

** Obviously the number of candles you can make depends on how big the containers are!

  7. Rewarding hobby

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Dec 2013

    This is my second kit, the first one was the small kit making around four cups, wanted to try before buying larger quantity. Very happy with result and the instructions were easy to follow. I'm not very good with measurements and was overwhelmed a little when I saw the huge block of wax,so I used half and made 10 to start with and still have half left. Prompt delivery, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Make Your own Candles.

  8. Rewarding Craft

    I have never made candles before and I found your instructions really easy. I think it would be easy to get hooked on candle making. Many thanks for your service.

  9. So easy

    This is my second purchase,it is so easy to do and my vintage teacups candles look great, consistent results and burn evenly to the last drop!

  10. absolutly lovely

    Posted by Sarah on 12th Nov 2013

    I would like to say a big thanks to Making your own candles for putting together this kit. It was so simple, fun and succesful. Clear instructions allowed me to make some lovely candles that burn for so far over 12 hrs. ( Have tested only one so far) I think Ishall add a little more fragrance next time and the smell was not too strong.Brill!
