Make yourself some pleasant lighting to get through the increasingly long, cold nights with this handy water candles tutorial from Instructables member Von Malegowski. All you need are a few household materials, including a jar, cooking oil, water, a candle wick, and a piece of plastic to make a beautiful light source surprisingly quickly. This looks like a great way to add some classy ambience to a cocktail party or a cozy night in with a special someone!

  1. Pretty good tutorial. Some thoughts:
    – You can get more use out of your candle wick if you cut it shorter. It only needs to be as long as the oil is deep.
    – You may want to use a wider bottle. Tall skinny bottles are easy to tip over
