The candle you are going to make lasts about 1000 times longer and is 100 times cheaper.

Steps Edit

  1. Get a can of Crisco.
  2. Get a candle wick or take the wick out of a unused tea candle.
  3. Smooth the surface of the Crisco out if it isn't already smooth.
  4. Put the wick in the the middle of the can of Crisco showing about a quarter of an inch, the more it shows the bigger the flame is going to be.
  5. Light your candle.

Tips Edit

  • The Crisco candle isn't really everlasting but it has been known to burn continuously for 45 days.
  • The flame is likely to be smaller than a regular wax candle because Crisco contains oxygen and thus is less energy dense.
  • Try to add multiple wicks to the can of Crisco.

Warnings Edit

  • Don't leave any open fire unattended.
  • Don't add too many wicks or else the whole can will catch on fire.

Things You'll Need Edit

  • Can of Crisco
  • Wick
  • Source of fire
