Intro: Emergency Lip Balm Candle

While I was surfing the Internet one day I found a candle somebody made out of butter. I decided that I was going to try making a candle out of another household item, So I made a lip balm candle!

Step 1: Supplies

Here is everything you need: • lip balm • toilet paper (I used twine instead) • toothpick or another object which you can use to poke a hole

Step 2: Poke a Hole in the Center of the Lip Balm

Using a toothpick or a object poke a hole in the center of the lip balm.

Step 3: Make the Wick

To make the wick, Roll out a piece of toilet paper very thin and fold the end up slightly.then poke the "wick" through the hole in the lip balm and secure it in place.

Step 4: Finishing the Candle

Trim the wick until only 1/2 of a cm is popping out of the top. Then roll the end around in the lip balm to add extra burn "fuel".

Step 5: Finished!

There you have it, your finished candle! To make this instructable even better you can carry this project around with you very easily. All you have to do is put the top of the tin back on.
