Aroma Oil Burner From Soda Can

About: I'm Nikhil Haresh, I work for the ships!

After breaking a few ceramic oil burners decided to make one. Drinking a soda and thinking what to do, there was a spark! The bottom section of the will be perfect for the water and oil bowl.

Step 1: Materials Required

  • Empty Soda Can
  • Craft Knife
  • Scissors
  • Awl
  • Image outline print
  • Tea Light Candle
  • Aroma Oil

Step 2: Piercing

Stick the image print over the soda can making sure the can is upside down. Once the print is stuck,start piercing on the outline, this gonna take time and needs patience.

I suggest to work in little dim lighting and put a small coin cell operated LED light inside the can.

Now we need to make a cutout to place the candle inside.

I marked out the the area and made the cutout using craft knife and scissors.

Step 3: Finishing!!!

I used a file and smoothed out the cutout and painted the can (last minute thought).

Show time

If you notice I've used the entire can,this is because the can gets heated quickly and water evaporated after 60-90 mins.
