Picture of Altoids Mini Stove
This is an instructable on how to make an Altoids stove. This is the perfect pocket-sized companion for anyone.
So, here are the materials:
a. You need an empty Altoids tin for the main body of the stove
b. Some candles to melt to provide fuel for the stove
c. A piece of newspaper to use as a wick
d. A wire hanger for a handle
e. A piece of metal to make a stand ( you can use any flat piece of metal, but I used another Altoids lid because I have a bunch of Altoid containers).

Step 2: Making the wick.

To make the wick Get your newspaper. Then do these steps:
a. Take your newspaper and roll it up to a little shorter than the inside of the Altoids container.
b. Then crease it and put it in the container by wrapping it around the inside of the container.

Why not shorten the handle so it fits inside the can?
