Product Description


This kit enables you to create up to 40 tea-cup sized container candles**. You provide the containers for this kit, for example tea cups, suitable glasses etc. This kit is ideal for:

  • Making candles to sell for profit or charity
  • Wedding table decorations
  • Wedding favours
  • School candlemaking
  • ...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:

  • 6KG Container Wax
  • 6 metres wick
  • 45 wick tabs (5 spares)
  • 60g dye
  • Instructions

Candle Scent

*You can add candle scent to your order, at up to 50% discount, by selecting from the options above.

You can select up to three scents, supplied in quantities of 100ml each - enough to scent up to 2-3KG 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!

    Lovely yellow wedding favours in Gu pots, and smelling of roses! Made 56 so far and hoping to keep going when I get more pots. Great products, clear instructions and really helpful customer service, thank you!

  3. I can't get enough of this!!

    Posted by Jill O'Donnell on 2nd Apr 2013

    I bought this pack a few months ago - sorry it's taken me so long to review it. I started off as a complete novice in candle making - boy has this changed! I ordered my pack and received it in great time. Loved the fact there was a personal written thank you on my paperwork. I watched the videos to help me get started and haven't looked back since! I now make candles in all my spare time and sell them at craft fairs, and as gifts to friends and family. I love how any help I needed or questions I had, help is just a click away. It's not just the products that are amazing - This company is awesome! Thank you very much - you have a customer for life! xx

    great kit, easy instructions, fab dye and scents. I used vintage tea cups and all who received them as gifts have said how pleased they were with them as they have a slow burn time too. Will definitely purchase again

  8. Good Fun

    I have always wanted to have a go a making candles in pretty teacups and have been buying teacups for a couple of years now, but never got round to actually buying the wax etc.
    Did a Google search and found everthing I needed plus the best video showing me how.
    Yesterday I started, (video running on comp, just in case I needed some help)....and today I have the prettiest fragrant candles. Brilliant. Now, no empty container is safe.... what can I make a candle in next? Most enjoyable and ready for birthday and christmas presents.

  9. Great product even better service

    I discovered this website purely by chance when I decided to venture into making vintage tea cup candles. Being a total newbie and not knowing where to begin Kevin and Peta have made it so easy. Easy to follow instructions , fantastic video , and more so always at hand to answer questions. Excellent website and service .
