Tea light cups, what to do with them

So I regularly use tea lights-- they are small and only burn for a few hours before going out. And I can get them cheap at the dollar store.

I have the little tin cups they sit in and not sure what to do with them. I know I can recycle them but hoping maybe there is use for them or someone else has an idea


Well, my idea was going to be to recycle them :sweat_smile: You can always keep them to make your own candles, too. I did some searching to see if I could find some other ideas, so I’ll leave you some links!

Maybe one of those ideas piques your interest!


And it’s @MeganB to the rescue again :joy:


haha I try my best!


I was having trouble with the cups as well, so I started buying tea lights that don’t come in anything and little glass holders for them. So all I’m throwing out is the little bit of metal at the end of the wick, and I’m reusing the glass holders.

These are the ones I started with, https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/751722632/beeswax-tealights-starter-kit, and I got larger ones as well, which so far, fit small votives from other stores as well, https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/740321224/beeswax-votive-starter-kit. For example, they actually fit the spell candles from here, https://speakinspells.au/product-category/candles/

If your budget allows for it, it’s an option to add to the list. :black_heart:


@MeganB I’m good but you make me look like a novice.

Sidenote, I haven’t been able to use it yet but I was able to get the cookie book over the summer. Thanks for finding it


haha I don’t mean to make you feel like a novice! :sweat_smile: I remember looking for that cookie book, too! :cookie: I’m sure when you’re ready to use it, it’ll be perfect!


That made me realize that it’s not just physical ability, I’ve been dragging my feet a little. I used to make those cookies regularly with the Little Ones

And no worries about the whole searching thing, I think it’s funny


You’re right - ability is categorized in many different ways, not just physical ability :heart: I’m sure one day you’ll get back to making those cookies with your kiddos! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
