Need an emergency candle! Or just want a cool looking candle. Maybe you could use them for a fire starters? (That is if you have matches as well.) How about a crayon candle.

This simple instructable will tell how to make your very own crayon candle.   

     I got this idea after seeing a lot of candles made from crayons but never one made out of a crayon.
Basically the paper replaces the wick in the candle. It takes a little bit for it to light though and burns for about 8 minutes.

Enjoy the video!
