Introduction: Decorative Candle Safe
Every house I have been in has a candle. No one will ever think that something is hiding inside!
*Disclaimer* the use of a sharp object is being used. Proper safety precautions should be followed. I can not be held accountable for damage of property, or self.
Step 1: Required Items
This is really simple. All you need is a candle and a knife.
The larger the candle the bigger your safe can be. A decorative candle would work best because these are usually not burned and used. I used a candle I found around the house, a larger candle would work better. MAKE SURE THERE IS A STICKER ON THE BOTTOM! This is the most important thing.
Any knife will work. A serrated knife may cause rougher cuts, but it will work. I used a basic pocket knife.
Step 2: Beginning Surgery
The sticker will create the flap that covers the safe. Peal it off carefully and make note where it lies. If theres a metal piece holding the wick, cut it off as it gets in the way.
Step 3: Digging In
You may even be able to use a spoon for this! I stuck my knife in at an angle. This made it easier to get chucks out. Make sure your hole is smaller than the sticker, and do not dig too deep.
Theoretically you could use a lighter and simply melt a hole into the bottom. This would result in a much nicer hole. A torch barbecue lighter would probably work best. If anyone tried this please make a comment and tell how it went!
Step 4: Stashing Your Goods
Once you've gotten out all the waxy bits out, its time to fill it with valuables. Te strength of your sticker determines how heavy of an object hidden inside. I hide some money in it. Placing the sticker on is as simple and sticking it back on.
Step 5: Set in Plain Sight
No one will know this candle is actually your safe! Enjoy!
We have a be nice policy.
