DIY- Candle Flower Pot Heater

Introduction: DIY- Candle Flower Pot Heater

About: The best Lifehacks and Tutorials on YouTube

Today I'll show you how to build a candle powered heater, using a few flower clay pots , nuts, washers........and candles.

Here my Youtube video : DIY - Candle Flower Pot Heater

Clay/Terracotta flower pots absorb the thermal energy of the candles and convert it into radiant space heat.

It reaches temperatures of 160F to 180F and stays hot for hours. CAUTION !!!
The inner chamber can reach 500F.

You can heat a small area very effectively using only 1 to 3 candles.

It is not intended as a permanent heater (24/7) , but good for a terrace or balcony.....

Provide good ventilation (indoor use)

Please do not leave unattended....

    Nice idea, if the power goes out a little heat is better than none. Ice storm it got down to 58F at our house.
