Introduction: Wine Bottle Tiki Torch

About: I'm an environmentally conscious experimenter who loves to bring people together, build things, and when possible...blow things up! See us on YouTube too!

Here's a cool idea for a tiki torch made from a wine bottle that you can make in about ten minutes.

Step 1: Tools and Materials


  • Spoke wrench or heavy wire cutter
  • Hacksaw


  • Wine bottle
  • Tiki torch wick
  • Bicycle hub
  • Kerosene or other lamp oil (we use citronella to keep bugs away)

Step 2: Prepare the Hub

Find a donor bicycle wheel from your local broke bike mountain.

Begin by removing the hub from the bike wheel. This wheel was toast so I just cut the spokes and removed them. Next remove the axle from the hub.

Step 3: Cut the Hub and Assemble the Torch

Cut the hub in half and stuff the tiki torch wick into it. From there, just put oil in the wine bottle and drop the wick into it. Once the oil migrates to the tip of the wick, light it and go. Lasts for hours and hours.
