Introduction: DIY Oil Lamp
This is a simple oil lamp I wanted to make after I saw this really nice spice grinder that we had.
All you will need to make this is the jar of your choice, a wick, and some aluminum foil. It is really simple

Take strips of aluminum foil and wrap it around something the size of your wick. I used a toothpick. Keep wrapping on layers of aluminum foil until you form some kind of stopper for the top of the jar with a hole in the center of the stopper for the wick.
Dip the wick in oil before pulling the wick through the hole in the stopper. Then, fill oil in the jar and fit the stopper on the top. I used ordinary cooking palm oil.
Light it up.
Enjoy your new oil lamp.
