  1. Melt old candle in pot over low to medium heat.
  2. Hang wick in center of tea cup and hold in place with skewers.
  3. Once candle has melted into a liquid, pour using funnel into tea cup.
  4. Allow to dry. The top of the candle may be become concave, so add more of the liquid wax to the top to achieve a smooth, even surface.
