make from the main vain from a banana leaf, a fuse.
wrap it in 1 layer of toilet paper (cut it in half).

<p>this is an awesome idea! Thanks for posting this up! It's such a simple concept.</p>
<p>Wow the candles looks great, it's so cool that you can use a banana leaf as a wick. Would love to see how it burns!</p>
I saw this on a beach in the Filipines.<br><br>I've made 30 candles so far. This Saturday I'll burn them all. Shall take pictures ;-).<br>The one I got burning already, is burning for 20 hours now, and still has many hours to go. ;-)
<p>Do you have a picture that you can show us after is has/had been burning for a few hours?</p>
