Introduction: Knex Candle Holder

Picture of Knex Candle Holder

This is a Knex Candle Holder that I made in about an hour.It can hold up to 5 candles and can easily be modified to hold more. There is a different platform for each candle, making for it's awesome shape :-)

CAUTION: Candles can get VERY hot, take care while lighting them.

Before you make this, I must warn you that you need 40 Y-clips to make it...

Anyway... do you like it? Of course you do! Great, then let's get building! Also, while you're here, please rate, comment, and subscribe! Thanks!

Step 1: Platfrom 1

°0° imagine giving it sides, then rolling a ball down it while the candles are lit! You now have a fire element for your k'nex ball machines everyone who sees this:) thank me later. xD

Shadowman39 (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-04

Lol. I don't know how to ship stuff overseas. Plus, I don't know your address. And the shipping would cost a lot. :-P

 Thats cool. there probably a better way to build the base to use less Y clips though, thats a killer in this.

erikos kostarikos (author)2010-01-31

Mr. Muggle (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-31


gmjhowe (author)2010-01-31

 Any chance of a little more description in the steps? Rather than having the same thing over and over!

The final assembly is good, just perhaps a slight explanation to help people along with the pictures. 

Hiyadudez (author)gmjhowe2010-01-31

On each of the pictures on each step I have made little notes helping them. This is actually a rather easy thing to make.

Thanks anyway :-)

~KGB~ (author)2010-01-30

 lolz fast reply! isnt it 2 in teh morning over their?

Hiyadudez (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-30

Im in England, its 20:11pm here.

~Aeronous~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-30

 oh, i thought you where american like everyone else, im in australia its 7.13 here,
I'm from england! have you heard of finsbury park in london?

Hiyadudez (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-30

SO you're on holiday in Aussie?

And no, I have not heard on Finsbury park. So, Im guessing you live in London?

~Aeronous~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-30

 well DID live in london, for 4 years but then my parents decided to go and live in aus (4 reasons unknown) and I was dragged along by a chain with them. I've been here 4 6years, (im not 10 btw i stayed in a place between north america and south america, for a year, and then went travelling for a year.
what I like to do is pretend I live in england, then on holidays when we sometimes go back and visit, just pretend that living in australia was the holiday lolz.

Hiyadudez (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-30

Ok, cool!

I want to live in Aussie, but I really don't want to leave all of my friends and everything I have here.

~Aeronous~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-30

yeah, my parents made me do that, ; ] but if you ever visit aus it would probably be better going down to victoria (state). above victoria it gets 40-45 degrees a lot. it was bloody hilarious when the average temperature is 25-30, and it sometimes (rarely) gets up to the 40s, that in england, their was a heatwave
                           WARNING HEATWAVE. 3Odegrees!!!
