I'm not gonna lie, this was a tricky project and I got wax all over my cooker.  I have a lot of these mini starbucks mugs from different countries but I don't drink espresso at home so I had to think of something else to use them for.


I have a tutorial for it on my blog.  I think this would make a good gift, perhaps you could even make one in a full size mug.

It depends on the style of ceramic...some will crack from the heat of the candle burning. And if there are any chips on the inside, the wax may seep into the interior portion of the unglazed part, and cause a "burst" in the cup, too. But very interesting project idea. I have made some in teacups that worked good. Just be sure to monitor things...don't leave them unattended.  Grin As should be said for any type of open flame.

Thanks for letting me know, I seem to get the code wrong every time, should be fixed now.

Thanks for the tips/warning.  Luckily there are no chips in it because it was never used but I will keep an eye on it if/when I light it.  I have some of the christmas cups too so they would be good for gifts but I would want to test with this one first to make sure they are safe to use.
