Step 1: Things you'll need:
2. Wick: I happened to have a wick from an old lantern that was lying around, but you could just as easily use a shoelace (plastic ends cut off) or any rolled up piece of cloth. *TIP* You'll want to use 100% cotton shoelaces, not synthetic. Synthetic will melt instead of burn and could lead to serious injuries. Thanks to user "Sedition"
3. Knife: I used my Leatherman c305 to cut a hole in the lid of the jar.
4. Lamp Oil: This will be used as fuel in the mini lantern. You can use other fuels such as Kerosene but they produce a lot of soot that will quickly build up.
5. Matches: To light the lamp when finished.
Step 2: Pierce the Lid:
Step 3: Wick:
The longer the wick above the lid, the higher the flame will be. I recommend you leave the wick no longer than 1/2 inch.
