Make your own tea light candles is easy and fun using our ready-to-fill aluminum tea light cups. Each cup measures 1 3/8 inches in diameter and are 5/8 of an inch deep. These measurements meet the industry standard size for tea light and are made of a durable aluminum.
Tea light candles can be used in potpourri burners, food warmers and any standard tea light candle holders. They provide the perfect ambiance to a wedding, party or dining setting. Other items you will need to make tea light candles are:
We recommend to keep it natural by using beeswax or container blend soy wax
If using beeswax or soy wax, we recommend to use medium paper core or HTP (high temperature paper) wicking; remember it's always suggested to do a test burn to make sure the size of wicking will work with your wax and size of candle
We reccomend wick tabs to hold your wick securely to the bottom of the tea light cup ensuring the wick doesn't fall over as the candle melts; before pouring the wax, secure the wick tab with wick attached to the bottom of the cup with hot wax or glue.
