Putting the burning side down into the can was the key! I've tried to figure out a fast way to make an incense burner from a can a bunch of times, but I hadn't tried that. Kudos to you.

My pic looks a bit different, because I was too lazy to get up for my can opener, so I just stabbed the can a lot with a pocket knife

/!\ Safety Advisory: Follow the original instructions. /!\ =p

Just a horrible phone camera for now, sorry.

Thought the incense burners on here were in that desperate need of an addition.
