How to Make 5 Emergency Candles

Emergency Candles:

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

Fist Step:

Number one start by taking a lump of edom cheese. Peeling off the wax coating next take a strip of newspaper. Roll it into a thin tight roll we’ll use this as a wick. Then tear off the strip of the cheese wax put the wick in at one end. Tightly roll up the wax until you have something which looks like this light it up. There we have our first finished candle.

Second Step:

Number two start by taking a block of butter. By using a sharp knife cut off a piece. Then using a thin screwdriver poke a hole down. The middle next push in a short length of cotton string to act as a wick. Finally wipe the top of the wick with some butter to help it light as it burns. The butter will start to melt and pool around the bottom of the candle.

Third Step:

Number three take a can of tuna in sunflower oil. By 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. 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.

Fourth Step:

Number four take a wax coloring crayon. Simply light at the end it might take a little while to get going. But once it started it’ll burn well. This may give off toxic fumes and should only be done outside. Finally here’s my favorite take an orange and using a sharp knife. Carefully cut through the skin in a circle around the center. Then gently use your thumbs to ease the peel off the fruit. Until you have something which looks like this. Make sure you have the center piece here because that’s going to be our wick.

Fifth Step:

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. If you want to you can float it in a bowl of water. Use it as a centerpiece on a table I hope you’ve enjoyed watching this video:
