Step 1: Things You Will Need

You will need..

~A cloth hanger
~tin can
~the caps of skinny markers
~paper clips
~a candle

Step 2: Getting Started

Take the tin can and cut it about two inches from the bottom. Then sand the edges. After that bend the edges in ever small so this will make sure that it is not sharp!

Step 3: The Holder

Now take the cloth hanger and form it into a holder this one worked good for me!

Step 4: The Fondue Sticks

Now it is time to make your mini fondue sticks. Take the paper clips and unravel them. Then fold them in half and twist them together making sure there is two little prongs at the end. After that take the tape and start wrapping it around the end without the prongs. When you get it thick enough stick it in the end of your marker cap.

Step 5: Lighting It Up

Now all you have to do is get a candle and light it up!!
Here is some really great recipes for fondue, All you have to do is scale down the recipes to fit in your new fondue pot.

Have fun!!

    Cute! But to avoid the painful process of cutting down the can and sanding/bending the sharp edges, why not just start with a small can? A tuna fish can would be hard to get clean enough, but a fruit cocktail can might do nicely.
