I made this simple and easy to do instructable so that you can use it outdoors, while camping, in your house, for power failures, or even just for fun. Enjoy : )
The thing I like about this is that it isn't easily blown out and you can carry it around and even hang it
If you make this or your own version I would like to see your pictures in the comments thanks...
Step 1: What you need
*A small baby food glass jar (Gerber)
*A Medium sized Aluminum can (I used an evaporated milk can) that is not open
*A coat hanger
*100% Cotton rag
*Scissors and other cutting tools (dremel...pliers...)
Step 2: Cut the Jar
After it is marked cut a small hole with a hobby knife and pour out the insides. Then with your knife or even easier a Dremel, cut out the window.
On the flat bottom part of your can drill a hole in the center to allow your wick to pass through. It should be about 1/2 an inch in diameter.
Step 3: Add the handle
Grab your coat hanger and cut about a 9 inch piece of wire from it (or more depending on how you want it) with some cutters.
Bend the wire into a U making sure it is even. Then bend the tips of the wire facing each other (see picture)
Take the U you just made and push it slightly together so when you put it on the can you can snap it in without it falling off.
