Bit of two crafts this week – sewing and back to soy candle making.
After a few weeks of sewing I have managed to drift back to candle making. I’ve had these candle holders sitting around for a while but I had not done anything with them so it was now time to put them to good use. The glasses are quite decorative with the gold patterns going around them. You can see the soy wax chunks through some of the glasses but the red glass is a bit too dark to be able to see the pink chunks inside.
I’ve had a go at making a full set of fabric coasters. There were a couple of yellow fabrics that went really well together and their bright colours are just what’s needed after what seems like weeks of snow. I put a couple of pieces of quite thick fabric inside to give them some lift and to stop them feeling too thin. The extra pieces also act as good insulation if using these for hot cups of tea or coffee.
Even during all this bad weather, a recent order for more candle making supplies arrived within a few days. The roads must be a lot better elsewhere in the country than they are here. With these new supplies, I now have 300 tealight cups to play with and to help test some new fragrances too. I’ll let you know how those worked out once the candles have been cured and lit.
