Shabby chic candles

I had £2 left in my sundries budget - what could I spend it on? Not the most exciting dilemma of my day, but I popped into my local charity shop and they had a set of 6 cups, saucers and tea plates for exactly £2.
If you're anything like me, you'll have various remnants of candles left over. I already had some wicks bought in Hobbycraft for £2.49 for 12. I was therefore able to create 6 little candles in a cup to give as gifts. I assume you can add essential oils to add fragrance, but it didn't have any, so these won't scent the room, but they look pretty. The cups are fixed to the saucers with some contact adhesive.

I'm quite pleased with them at approximately 50p a piece.
