Step 2: Prep Tiki Torch

The Tiki torch comes with thin pieces of wood wrapped around the the top holding in the cintenella candle. I simply pulled each one out one at a time. They are not glued or stapled they come out really easy. There are metal ring s that surcure the vertical wood pieces that hold the water bottle in.

Step 3: Add the LED Light

Adding the led light is pretty straight forward I ordered it off ebay. I think I typed round led light. This light fits perfectly in the round tiki torch. All you need to do is drop it down the top and let it sit on the bottom metal ring. To turn on the light there is a button on the top of it that you push in to turn on and off.

Step 4: Add Water Bottle

Using a water bottle disperses the light to brighten up an area. Not all water bottles will fit in the tiki torch so make sure to look that it will fit. I had one laying around that i used. Then to use the LED tiki torch stick your finger under the water bottle and press down on the led light button make sure the water bottle is on top back away and there ya go.
