Those are brilliant! And so cute too. I love vintage teacups. I bought one recently at Goodwill even though it has a hairline crack because it was so pretty. I was thinking of making one of those teacup candles but was afraid the hot wax would make the crack worse so this is a perfect use for it. Thanks for the directions, Kellen46...I'm adding that to my list of crafts to make for gifts (and myself)  Wink

I am thinking of making one of these but leaving the teacup on the saucer. Does anyone know the best type of glue to use to glue the cup and saucer together?

E-6000 should work well. The big box craft stores usually have it. Some bead shops carry it.

Wow.  They are super cute.  The steel wool is a really good idea.  I can't wait to make one!
