1 toothpick
toilet paper

Step 2: What You Do First Is

First take your butter and cut a chunk 2 TBSP off. Now poke a hole through the middle with the tooth pick.

Step 3: The Wick Part 1

For the wick tear a piece of toilet paper off of your roll. now cut it in half then cut it in half again. Now you roll it up.

Step 4: The Wick Part 2

Fold the end part slightly and stick the toothpick in now push the wick and toothpick l down in the hole you made early on in the instrucable and remove the toothpick. rub your fingers in the butter and grease the wick.

Step 5: Now You Light It

Hope you enjoyed my instructable. Also the candle burned for about 45 minutes. Please vote for me and see yall later. Bye.
<p>I'm surprised you managed to get the toilet paper to burn for 45minutes!</p><p>any suggestions for longer burning DIY wicks though?</p>
<p>if it is not cheaper than a candle what is the point of this?</p>
<p>Number 1: If the power goes out and you don't have a flashlight or normal candle</p><p>Number 2: it smells like butter </p><p>Number 3: Because it's fun :)</p><p>Hope this answers you're question.</p>
<p>Nice! Does the butter melting make your house smell good?</p>
<p>Yes the area around it smelled really good.</p>
you can do this using shortening like the bricks of Crisco shortening. those burn a long time.
<p>Very cool!</p>
<p>nice idea</p>
<p>What a great use for bacon fat:)</p>
<p>Thanks yall</p>
<p>Nice Idea!</p>
I saw this instructable and instantly tasted butter in my mouth, haha. Great job thou!
<p>Hey that's kinda cool; Nice Idea !</p><p>Does the air smell like butter afterwards?</p>
<p>It does indeed; but that's only if you get the salted version.</p><p>For another way of doing so get a can and vegetable oil. Poor the vegetable oil in and get a lid that's over sized or fits good &amp; poke a hole in it big enough to stuff a piece of paper towel or toilet paper in.</p>
<p>If you want it to be scented just get some ectract oil and poor in.</p>
