Incense Stick Holder

About: PENGUINS!!!!

Did you ever wanted to put an incense stick on your room but had no support to hold it and keep the ashes together? This is a VERY SIMPLE instructable, but I hope that it will help someone!

It happened to me, so I figured out a way to solve my problem.

I had a broken mouse, and I used the plastic of it to make my incense stick holder.

The only thing I needed was the broken mouse, a screwdriver, a little bit of duck tape and some minutes of my time.

Step 1: Step 1: Open the Mouse

The first step is to open the mouse, to do that we used the screwdriver to remove the screw that maintained it together, so we could keep only the inferior part. Depending on the mouse it will be a little bit different, in this mouse it was perfect because then we can use the tube where the screw was placed to sustain our incense stick.

Step 2: Step 2: Duck Tape the Hole

Mouses have a hole where the laser is placed to detect the movement. It is a problem for us because all the ashes would go directly on the table, so we duck taped it a little bit to help prevent this situation.

Step 3: Step 3: Put the Incense Stick and Enjoy

Now we just have to put the incense stick on one of the holes where the screws where placed, and fire the extreme on the top to enjoy the smell on our room having a practical incense holder with a computer-like fashion style that can be cleaned easily and will prevent the ashes of the incense stick to fall on our table.

It is a simple project, but is my first instructable, and bet that there are lots of people that never thought about it before.

    it is a broken mouse, that you just disassembled, you will not have to use that part of the mouse for anithing else than holding the ashes of your incense. <3
