folding, cutting and gluing, it holds a standard tealight candle
in its centre, reflecting the light from the sources to the faces
and facets of each triangular shape.
It can be made by almost anyone with the time and required
materials - simply meaning that it is accessable to anyone.
Incense is another option if candles aren’t your first choice, as
long as it is held within the bottom of the Meditation Centre, it
will not cause a fire.
Easy to use, reusable, ecofriendly, good for the soul.
Step 1: Equipment List
6 Pint Bottle of Milk
Step 2: Marking out for cutting
At the bottom, measure 1.5cm perimeter around the bottom of the handle, and mark it
If done correctly, the markings should look like this
Step 3: Final cuts 1
Step 4: Final cuts 2
Step 5: Making the triangles
Apply glue to the flap and..
..bend the pyramid into shape
Then fix into place, leaving it to dry for as long as the glue requires. This will let you know whether you need better glue later on - If the shape doesn't remain once the pegs came off, it meant I needed better glue
Around 40 should be made in total
Step 6: Gluing
Apply glue to all the surfaces of the handle and then place triangles on each surface. This stage is very crucial as you will have to decide how steep you want the object to be (based on how high the rear triangles sit)
Step 7: Final words
I've started to use the top of this as an incense holder for spare incense sticks.
