Wonderland Teacup Candle Craft

In Lewis Carroll’s classic “Alice in Wonderland,” the tea party scenes are perhaps the most memorable;

the nonsense conversations, silly characters and, of course, ‘the very happy un-birthday’ song.

This fun craft will bring you back to that Wonderland scene and also doubles as a great mother’s day gift as it is

100% eco friendly, pretty and ia useful nostalgic decoration!

If you don’t have china cups you want to recycle, thrift stores or second hand stores often have a wide variety of china

for very reasonable prices.
