Hi so i havent really posted much on things i have made over my craftster years, so here's a start  Smiley I made these not long ago for a vintage market stall I did, 2 out of 3 tea cup candles sold and I only have a couple coasters left out of about 17... it was fun making them. It was a good recycling project..

The teacups were found in opshops for $1-$4 each. The candles also from the opshop never used so I smashed the wax, melted it and used the wicks that were inside  Wink


The coasters from wood panels pre-cut and the pictures from old kids story books - different versions of Alice. The coloured coasters were my fave but sadly no pics they were sold!  Cheesy


Thanks for looking hope it inspires you in some way!  Grin

Nice!  Those coasters are great, how did you seal the images?

Love those coasters, great way to use illustrations from a favourite childhood book.

I painted the sides of the coasters and sprayed with clear lacquer sealant, put a fabric square on the bottom and for the top put a layer of sticky clear contact film on the picture  Smiley
