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!

    I found the kit and easy to follow instructions combined with the video tutorial as a perfect combination for a beginner like me! I had wanted to try making container candled for a long time but was worried I would be unsuccessful & waste money...but this is definitely not the case - lots of great feedback & orders already coming in! Thank you!

    I've had wonderful results from my first kit, really good step by step instructions, the dye & scent were lovely, I'm addicted !!

  4. Easy to use

    Posted by Mo Davey on 23rd Aug 2013

    This product is great and so easy to use. Have already sold five of my tea cup candles and hoping to sell the rest so will be back for more supplies. I ordered the lavender dye and the candles came out a lovely pale lilac colour.

  5. Candle making made easy

    Posted by Jillian Noble on 24th May 2013

    I have been ordering this product for two years and have found it to be very good. Easy to use and the dye and scent is also very good.

  6. Great easy to use candle making kit.

    Posted by Unknown on 24th May 2013

    This was my first go at making my own candles, and I never imagined it would be this easy and enjoyable. The straight forward instructions made the whole experience so good, think I'm addicted to making them now!

  7. Brilliant, as always!

    Posted by Sarah on 25th Apr 2013

    I've just purchased this kit to 'top up' my supplies. The products are of excellent quality as always. I tried some different colour dyes and am in love with the YELLOW - the colour of daffodils so perfect for spring. Thanks Peta for fantastic service, great products and easy instructions!

  8. Fantastic product

    Posted by Debbie on 18th Mar 2013

    Bought this after trying out the single kit. I have been making teacup candles for my wedding, and it's so easy. The kit is really straightforward, and if you also watch the video on the website then you really can't go wrong. The candles look fab, and burn for ages (I couldn't resist trying one!) it arrived super quickly and I really loved the personal touch. Thanks very much

  9. Bring your own container kits

    Posted by Kim Tolton (www.warrencrafts.co.uk) on 9th Jan 2013

    I purchased the above kit and used vintage tea cups as the receptacle. It was SO easy to do with excellent instructions for my first attempt at making candles. The scents were amazing too. Everyone that has used the candles have said they have a nice slow burn time too.

  10. Great first experience in candle making

    Posted by S Hey on 30th Dec 2012

    Thanks to your great product I managed to make my first candles without any problem! Lovely Christmas gifts!
