Add an adorable and beautiful lighting in your home with this homemade water candle. A glass of water with astonishing decorations look simply spectacular. Let this special candle lighten up your living space.
What you need:
- Plastic bottle
- Olive oil (cooking oil or sunflower oil is acceptable)
- Candle wick
- Beads (or other decorations)
- Glass (or jars)
First, we will create a thin plastic disk to keep the candle wick afloat. Grab the plastic bottle and cut out a disk-like piece which fits perfectly inside the glass.
After that, create a hole on the center of the disk.
Grab the candle wick. Cut it to about one inch and insert it into the hole. Make sure about 3 mm of wick is out at the bottom of the disk.
Place the beads on the glass. You can use old jars or whatever clear containers for this project. Fill it with water leaving about an inch space from the top.
Grab the thin disk and wick and carefully place it on the water in the glass.
Pour in the olive oil to the glass. It creates another layer of liquid filling up your container. This oil will fuel up your candle.
And you are done! Now, light up your water candle! Once the candle is lit, do not try to move it to avoid spilling the hot oil. Bear in mind that before you lighten up the candle, place it in its final position and ignite.
