Has anyone used terra cotta saucers as pillar candle holders?
I posted on THS! Soap & Candle (Making) forum about using terra cotta saucers as pillar candle holders, but haven't got a response yet.
Has anyone done this? What size did you use to catch wax overflow?
I'm wondering if a 3" diameter pillar candle would need a 4" diameter saucer, or bigger? Same with 4" (5" if they exist) & 6" diameter pillar candles: 5" (6") & 7" diameter saucer, or bigger?
I don't know how much room to give the wax overflow is the problem.
I don't like the flat plate & shallow-lipped 'dish' types in the store because I've had wax overflow onto tables & floors before & those holders just don't catch the wax.
I was trying to find clear glass hurricane pillar candle holders I could use in every room no matter the decoration scheme, but all anyone has are those for 3" & sometimes 4" diameter pillar candles.
