Have Old Teacups That you Never Use? Upcycle them!

Posted by Ariel Davis on

Perhaps those dainty teacups that've been sitting in storage for who knows how long once belonged to a loved one--or maybe you acquired them at a different phase in life and no longer have use for them. Well, we have just the thing to inspire you to take your pretty pieces of porcelain out of storage and into the light!

Introducing Teacup Candles Made from your own China! 

In partnership with our friends Glow to Grow, a Brooklyn-based, eco-conscious candle company, we can now transform your teacups, coffee mugs, and even gravy boats and sugar bowls into delightful, eco-friendly scented candles to enjoy in any room of your home. They also make heartwarming (& melting) gifts that loved ones can enjoy year-round.😉

 How it works: 

  1. Book an upcycle consultation to discuss what you'd like to transform into candles select from our year round and seasonal fragrance options. Minimum of 4 teacups/vintage vessels per order.  
  2. Check out and follow shipping instructions to send your china to our Brooklyn studio. 
  3. We ship your upcycled china candles back to you, ready to make memories and enjoy!

    Don’t have vintage teacups to spare?

     More about our scented candles:

    • Made from 100% clean-burning, all-natural soy wax.

    • Free of additives, dyes, phthalates, or oil-based petroleum products.

    • Eco-friendly FSC Certified 100% naturalhand-crafted wooden wicks

    In case these candles didn't sound "Brooklyn" enough, all of them ship with dust covers made from wildflower seed paper.😊Once empty and cleaned out, teacups can be repurposed (again!) as planters to grow flowers, succulents, or other small plants.
