Mug Turned Colorful Candle Holder - candle burning inside the cupA good way to use old mugs or even punch cups is to set a few cups on a tray, each one containing store bought votives (normally it takes two). Set the tray in the oven on 250 degrees F and let the candles melt. Remove one of the wicks and leave the other one. As the candle begins to cool, straighten the wick up into the center.


There you have it. A lovely handmade gift for about a dollar! (Cups can be purchased at thrift shop most often for 25 cents or watch for them at rummage sales!)

I recently was gifted with a few bottles of Dala glass glaze. Some time ago, I received a white mug that was used as the gift box for a small gift. I wanted to do something with the mug. There was nothing wrong with the mug, except that it was white. I decided to turn the mug into a nifty candle holder using the glaze.

Mug Turned Colorful Candle Holder - mix the emerald and blue glaze to make a darker green and add shadows to the grass shoots and to color the center of the flowers
