Step 1: Items needed
Step 2: Removing metal and wicks from candle
Step 3: Preparing altoids tin
Step 4: Melting the max and preparing the candle
To melt the tea lights place them all in a safe,thick canning jar and place the jar in a pot. Fill the pot up with enough water to cover enough of the sides of the jar but not to much that it will go into the jar. Heat the water on your stove gradually until all of the tea lights melt. Once the wax is in liquid form pour it into the Altoids tin and either let it sit out disturbed to harden or place in the freezer to let it harden quicker. And that is all you need to do to make a cool camping or emergency survival candle and also is a great way to cut down on using electricty on lights.
