THIS IS MY FIRST EVER UPLOAD. PLEASE BE KIND AND SORRY FOR NOT MANY PHOTOS, I HAD LIMITED TIME. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT FOR HELP. I WILL HELP YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. LETS START MAKING THE OIL LAMP!


WHAT YOU NEED:

ALMINIUM OR COCA COLA CAN
PURE 100 % CLOTH
CANDEL OIL OR OLIVE OIL (OLIVE OIL BURNS FOR LONGER VUT IS HARD TO LIGHT)


LETS GET STARTED:


1. REMOVE COKE'S LID OR THINGY THAT CLOSES IT.

2.CUT CAN IN HALF FROM MIDDLE. SIDES NOT FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

3. POUR PLIVE OIL OR CANDEL OIL IN THE BOTTOM HALF OF CAN, HALF WAY PLEASE.

4. SOAK THE CLOTH IN THE OIL.

5. SLOT CLOTH 1 CM THROUGH OIL. IT SHOULD TOUCH THE OIL TOO!

6.LIGHT IT YOURE DONE.

good idea! would love to see more photos.

why not just dump the oil into the can the "stuff" a rolled up rag thru the center?

you can also use thin rope for the same effect.

all in all a great idea. just a little more time needed on the 'ible

Good job!
Good thing to know.
