How to Make an Everlasting Candle

Candles are a wonderful way to add warmth and a pleasant aroma to a home or office. Most candles burn up and are thrown away, but it is possible to make an everlasting candle, which will last considerably longer than normal candles, 
maybe even forever. 



Things You'll Need


  • Can of Crisco
  • Cotton wick (these can be purchased at a craft store)
  • Matches or a lighter

Instructions:

Crisco Everlasting Candle

    • Open a can of Crisco. The bigger the can, the better.
    • Insert the candle wick into the center of the can of Crisco. If the can has a large diameter, multiple wicks can be inserted. Leave a quarter of an inch of wick showing above the Crisco to make sure the flame is a manageable size.
    • Even out the top of the Crisco so the candle is smooth.
    • Light the wick and enjoy the candle.
