This will be my first instructable, so bear with me (criticism is much needed please). It should take near to no resources (household items), and possibly 10 dollars for the oil. I would rate this easy, but that's just me, and it takes under an hour.
Hope you enjoy :D
Note: I really doubt you can hurt yourself unless you are an utter imbecile, however I will take no responsibility for any damages, injury, or death that may occur. It's fire folks, it burns stuff, so make sure you take all measure to make sure it burns the oil and the wick, not you and your stuff.
Step 1: "Lets Get Your Act Together"
You Will Need
Flat Head Screwdriver
A Glass/ Crystal Container
Wick (Or Tightly Wound Yarn/ Thread to make your own)
Note: Please make sure that the can will fit on top of the glass. (Image 2)
Step 2: "Cutting the Cheese"
First you are going to take the can, and cut it in two. We will be using the bottom for now, but save the top half for later. Now cut the bottom of the can, so only the bottom silver is left. You want to make sure that there is not a protruding lip on any part of the can. This leave with issues later on.

Step 3: "The Hole Truth"
Take Your Screwdriver, like a chisel, and place it in the middle of the can. Tap it somewhere between forcefully and gently until it breaks through. Do it again, making an X in the middle of the can
Note: If your lid bends due to your hammer, just flip over your screwdriver, and tap it until it bends back to where you had it before :D.
Step 4: "Wicked"
Now, if you do not have twine rope like I did, you can use the tightly wound yarn Weave it around itself (ever braid your hair? that method works really well, just do it multiple times), then rap thread tightly around your newly made wick. If you see the picture below, I have a custom made wick started.
Now take the CD Spacer (remember, optional) and cut it so that only the very inner circle is left. This will allow your wick to breathe and also hold your ornaments up a little higher in the glass, if wanted. You can change its size, depending on how high you want the ornaments.
Next, you will take the ornaments, and place them around the wick, trying to distribute the weight on all sides.
Step 5: "Fill'r Up"
Step 6: "The End Is NEAR!"
Now take your lid (it has set by itself for most of the project D:) and place the wick inside it. You may need to pry the can a bit so it can fit, but remember, a tight fit is GOOD. This is not a candle, and the wick takes a lot longer to burn down. The flame i used in the pictures was caused by a wick that is only 1/8 inch off the lid.
Step 7: "I Thought It Would Never End"
Take your other half of a can (you thought I forgot about it didn't you :D), and cut it to the silver, just like the other can. After this is completed, take the flap, and force it back into its original place. This will snuff out your flame.
Step 8: "FINISHED!"
Hope you understood everything, and if not, just leave a comment and I will do my best to fix it.
Thanks for Reading :D
