HOW TO MAKE 5 EMERGENCY CANDLES – LIFE HACKS

Today I’m gonna show you how to make my five favorite emergency candles

  1. DIY Candle Cheese Wax

start by taking a lump of edom cheese and peeling off the wax coating

null

next take a strip of newspaper and roll it into a thin tight roll

null

null

we’ll use this as a wick then tear off the strip of the cheese wax put the wick in at one end and tightly roll up the wax until you have something which looks like this light

nullnullnull

2. DIY candle Butter

 

it up and there we have our first finished candle number two start by taking a block of butter and using a sharp knife cut off a piece like this

 

null

null

then using a thin screwdriver poke a hole down the middle

null

 

next push in a short length of cotton string to act as a wick and

nullnull

finally wipe the top of the wick with some butter to help it light as it burns the butter

null

will start to melt and pool around the bottom of the candle

3. DIY Candle Tuna Can

take a can of tuna in sunflower oil and

null

 

using a thin screwdriver poke a hole through the top be careful not to slip and don’t go through the other side next take a short length of cotton string and poke it through the hole

nullnull

null

and into the can use a pair of scissors to cut off any excess then go ahead and light it up surprisingly this doesn’t really smell and you can still eat the tuna once you’ve finished

4. DIY Candle Crayon

 

take a wax coloring crayon and simply light at the end it might take a little while

 

nullnull

to get going but once it started it’ll burn well

 

null

this may give off toxic fumes

null

and should only be done outside and

5. DIY Candle Fruit

null

finally here’s my favorite take an orange and using a sharp knife

 

null

carefully cut through the skin in a circle around the center then gently use your thumbs to ease the peel off the fruit

null

null

until you have something which looks like this make sure you have the center piece here because that’s going to be our wick next take some olive oil and pour it into the orange make sure to soak the wick with some but don’t cover it then light it up it might take a little while to get started but once it’s going it should last a long time and if you want to you can float it in a bowl of water and use it as a centerpiece on a table I hope you’ve enjoyed watching this video if you want to see more click on the links on the right hand side or take a look at my youtube channel page these candles should only be used outside in a well-ventilated area where nothing else can catch fire should anything go wrong have fun stay safe and as always thanks for watching
