At bed bath and beyond I saw mini martini glasses that were candles! It was sooo cute!  If you know how to make candles it would be very spiffy to do this.

Perhaps some sort wood olive could be put in.

The wax was just white and I couldn't tell what the scent was.

Yes!  Those candles are so cute!  I wonder if you could do the same for other drinks, or would they be as cute as the martini glasses? (say, champagne maybe?)

The Designer Guys made martini candles. They have instructions on their website, here's the link:

Good luck!

hey hard candy. No I haven't made these yet.. i havn't made any candles really. I like what someone said w/ champagne, that's a really cool idea. Could bubbles possibly be put in? that would  be awesome. MAybe micro beads would work. hmmm, but they might sink

At my florists you can buy teeny-tiny glass bubbles, they are hollow, like blown glass. You can get them in different sizes, maybe they would work, but they may also sink. It's 1 50/50 chance.

Well, to avoid the sinking problem,you could do it in stages- pour in some wax, let it harden a bit, add some bubbles, pour in some more....

The candles out of drink glasses look so cute!  I would love to do one with a margarita glass.
