I got the containers I made them in from a thrift store and most of them were on sale, so I paid $1.48 for all four of them. They're so cute and smell so nice with their natural, unadulterated beesy smell, I'm rethinking the whole giving-them-as-gifts things.
And they are so easy to make! I just washed the containers, made sure they were thoroughly dry, melted the wax in a fake double boiler (a small casserole dish floating in a larger pan of water), used some melted wax to affix the storebought wick to the bottom, and poured the wax in. The teacup, I affixed the saucer to the cup with some adhesive putty the day after I made them so I was sure the wax was really hard. That's it. Quicky, super cute gifts for about $2.50 each, including the cost of the wax (which I was given, so I didn't even have to pay that!).
