Introduction: Ocean Jar Torch
I love candles and making them ❤ When I bought lamp oil for an authentic lamp, I thought taking it one step further, making my own. When I saw the Instructables contest, I decided to make this with a jar; because using it would be practical. The result is pretty cute. Enjoy!
- Wick holder
- Kerosene/blue lamp oil/blue petroleum oil/ even vegetable oil with blue food coloring / basically any blue oil
- Crushed stones
- Seashells, faux decorative shells
- Screws with different sizes
Step 1: Make a Hole in the Jar Lid
Place the lid on a solid surface.
Secure yourself and your fingers.
Measure the bump of the wick holder.
Take the smallest screw and using hammer set it on the lid, make a hole.
Make several holes. Then take a bigger screw and set it on the lid. Widen the holes.
Step 2: Place the Wick Holder and Wick
Once the hole matches the size of the wick holder's bottom, place the wick holder.
Step 3: Put the Crushed Stones
Put the desired amount of crushed stones as the first layer in the jar.
Step 4: Place the Pebbles
Put the desired amount of pebbles on crushed stones as the second layer in the jar.
Step 5: Place the Decoratives & Seashells
Pick some seashells, faux shells and other decoratives.
Place them on pebbles in the jar.
Step 6: Pour the Kerosene
After placing all the stones and shells, fill the jar with gas oil.
Step 7: Close the Lid & Light the Torch
Close the lid wich wick and wick holder placed on it.
Wait till the wick absorbs the oil, around 15 minutes.
With a lighter, burn the wick.
-Remember, it is safer to use this torch outside-
