We feel like Christmas elves in our house and have been slaving away at making candles for everyone. Rik managed to search out some amazing vintage teacups from a couple of the many charity shops in Chorley and apart from not writing down the colour / scent combinations (and then not been able to remember what was what!) it has been a fairly problem free process.
To make the candles I used Kirsties, Channel 4 beauty and Design sponge instructions, which all made sense, but I just pinched bits from them all to do it the way that seemed best. I would recommend doing a trial run, just to get the hang of it. Oven gloves are a must, as is an old plastic jug and a pan - we used a set of old camping billy cans.
