Introduction: Beercan Mosquito Repellent Cum Camping Light.

Empty beer cans or any drink cans make wonderful lamps while camping.

We use these as an insect repellent too.

Step 1:

All you need is

a tin can, in this case I use RED BULL can...OK first enjoy the drink in it and wash it .


a tea light and insect repellent liquid.

Step 2:

Make a vertical slit in the can.

At both ends of the vertical slit make 2 horizontal slits, such that you have cut a large H in the can when held horizontally.(see Picture if still not clear)

Step 3:

Open up on both sides of the long verticle slit, like a window.

Round of the sharp corners of the cut flaps to make it safer to handle.

Make the can stand upside down i.e. open end down.

Step 4:

Place a tea light inside. L

Light it up.

Pour some water in the shallow upper end.

Add a few drops of repellent liquid.
