Great job. I love the smell of cinnamon as a candle slowly warms it. I really like the embellishment idea you have used too.

Awesome idea, I love repurposing thrift store junk. I make candles and so this idea really caught my eye. Thanks for a brilliant repurposing idea

I think you have done a great job. I agree with scarlet_nights if you use a skewer you can tie your wick to it. I actually place my wick between two pop sticks and I place an elastic band around the pop sticks to keep them together. Works perfectly every time.

I have one candle that got a layer of dust on it and I had to burn it for a while and then pour off the melted wax and dust. It wasn't perfect, but it was better. Whenever I make container candles I like to have a lid for them because my house seems to attract dust - maybe it is because I am crafting and not cleaning!

You sure found some beautiful tea cups there. I love trips to Goodwill to find containers for making candles in. I have used wine glasses, cookie jars, mugs, beer glasses, vases etc.

Are you wicks primed? Wicks should first be primed with melted wax so that they burn better. This just means putting you wick into hot melted wax, taking it out and running your fingers along it to straighten it. I find this helps the wick stay alight.

Cheers
