Vintage egg cup candle votives

I found these gorgeous EPNS egg cups in a battered old box and tarnished so badly you could barely see the etched design.  I cleaned them up and decided they would make smashing little candle votives for the Christmas season. 

I used soy wax, which will not harm the cups and washes fresh away when the life of the candle comes to an end.  You could refill or use them as they were intended. glamorous vintage egg cups. 

Perfect for a shabby chic home.

Available to purchase from my ETSY store

    What a great idea, I've had enough of teacup candles so I'll be on the look out for some eggcups like these. They look gorgeous and quirky, just what I like.

    I've done candles in porcelain egg cups and they were lovely so I'd love to try making some like this! Those egg cups are gorgeous – definitely very shabby chic 🙂 Jem xXx
