I don't like the dice, but I like this idea. For Valentines, they could be candy hearts. For Christmas or Hannukah, they could be tiny colored ball/large shiny beads. Acorns or walnuts in the fall?

Simply GLUE the cup to the saucer for a nice Candle Holder. A GREAT way to use Old or Chipped China... haven't any ?? The THRIFT STORES are full of them. I love how the cup handle automatically becomes a handle for the carrying of a candle too. Nice ! Very cool!!
