Introduction: Oil Lamp

Picture of Oil Lamp

Uh oh!! The power went out and we don't have a generator or any good flashlights around! We need some light!! Oh I know I'll go get my HOMEMADE OIL LAMP!!!!All u need to make this is any type of glass bottle with a metal cap, an old cotton t-shirt,and probably some scissors or something to cut the tshirt into a strip.and a knife to cut a slit in the cap. Put some lamp oil in it and the wick (t-shirt) will soak up and then u put the strip into the slit.and there u have it a lamp.

I know this didn't come out in steps but that's because I posted this off my iPod and not a computer..
