Step 1: Gather Materials and Tools
Used up tea candle or foil
Loose or oil incense
Step 2: Cut Can in Half
You are using the bottom half. Cutting the can too close to the bottom will result in smothering the candle \.
Step 3: Trim Edge
Use sharp scissors to trim edge of can.
Step 4: Clean and Dry
Be careful to not cut yourself in this step! You need to wash and dry the can. Hot water is fine, no soap needed.
Step 5: Add Painters Tape to Sharp Edge
Add painters tape to sharp edge leaving 1/2 the width exposed.
Step 6: Tuck the Tape
Fold the tape inward to the inside. This protects you from a sharp edge.
Step 7: Add Air Holes
Add 3-4 triangular shaped holes with sharp knife.
Step 8: Poke Holes
Use hammer and nail to make hole(s) in bowl of can. 1 is fine, but extra holes allow extra heat to the incense.
Step 9: Light Candle
Step 10: Place Can Over Candle
Step 11: Add Bowl to Top
Add bowl of incense to top. Use either foil or used up tea candle to make external bowl for incense. Within 3-5 minutes the incense will be potent. Great for indoors or outdoors.
