You can make an oil lamp from just three matches. This is also a good way to recycle used cooking oil. Most oils will burn well in this type of oil lamp and three matches tends to be the magic number to get a good lasting flame.
What you need are:
1. A book of paper matches.
2. A piece of wire, like a twist tie or copper wire.
3. A bowl or jar with cooking oil in it.
Assemble by tying the three matches together with wire and make a loop so they will stand up in the oil. Then put them in the oil and light.
