Intro: Mini Medieval Torch
using that magic fireball thing, now you can make a little torch, to put in your little dungeon!
Step 1: Here Go Your Supplies
1)~3 ft of a thick thread...i had some left over from a previous project
6)3 paper clips
7)needle nose pliers
Step 2: Bend Them Clips
make them straight
Step 3: This Picture Is B-a-d
you cant see it good, but what i did is:
- drill hole through dowel, diameter of thread.
- put thread through hole
- file down three notches spaced evenly around dowel so paperclips
fit in (i colored them blue so you can see)
Step 4: Get You Some Glue
wrap the thread around where the paper clips fit. i had to use a little glue so they didnt squirm around. this zapacap stuff is great
Step 5: Almost Done!!
make sure you make the fireball from the link in the intro to fit the space you made with your paperclips
my desk has been through alot of projects as you can see
Step 6: Best Picture of the Day
use the needle nose pliers to bend the paperclips inward so they look like the picture, then use the wire cutters to snip them off
make sure the fireball doesnt come to close to the top of the dowel, this way the thread and dowel wont light on fire.
Step 7: Explore Your Dungeons
the entrance to my dungeon is through my closet door.
light it up.
