You will need:
- A mint tin
- Small birthday candles
- Clay
- Matches and strike strips
- Moss
- Tack-it

Garnish
- A small gift ribbon
- A very small pine cone

Step 2: Painting the tin (Skip this step if you won't paint it)

This step is not necessary, but it looks very nice.

I sanded off the surface so that the paint sticked better to the tin. It may not be needed.
Then just paint it and wait for it to dry.

Step 3: Making the bottom and the candle stand

Fill the bottom out with the clay. Then roll a clay ball, put it in the middle and smooth it out, so you will get a bump to put the candle in. The candles didn't fit with their normal size, so i cut a little bit off. When you have molded the clay into a candle stand, take the candle out.

Step 4: Decorate with moss

Cut off the top off the top of the moss so you will get the green part of it. Now take a needle or a skewer. Put the moss onto the clay, and then poke here and there so that it will stick to the clay.

Step 5: The ignition part

Roll the tack-it and place on one of the sides. I to chosen to store 3 matches in my tin, but i guess there can be a few more. Glue the strike strip on and let's go on to the next step!

Step 6: Garnish it!

I have founded a very small cone and we have these small gift ribbons. They were perfect for this. Glue them on, so that the there will still be space enough to store the candles. You can use almost anything. Just remember that we don't want the candle to ignite the other things.

Step 7: Finish it!

Assemble the kit. When you are going to use the Emergency Christmas Candelight, just choose a candle, stick into the stand and light it up! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
For a second it looked like marijuana haha
Haha, I thought so too. There's a spin-off idea
