When your camping or backpacking it is hard to bring a heat source with you. Try out this hack, how to make a portable camping candle.
All you need is:
- 1 empty Altoid container
- Two small candles
Step 1: Empty Altoids Container
Take out all of the Altoids from the container. If you have done this or had an empty Altoid container move on to step 2.
Step 2: Clean Out the Container
Altoids are great for helping with bad breath. However, they leave behind that dusty residue. Clean out the container with a rag or water. Make sure the container is dry after washing it.
Step 3: Melt the candles
In a small sauce pan completely melt the candles and cautiously remove the wicks with needle nose pliers.
Step 4: Pour the wax into the Altoids container
Place the wicks in the container facing up. Cautiously pour melted wax into the Altoid container.
Step 5: Let wax cool
For safety and to avoid spilling wax wait for it to cool and dry.
Step 6: Use your portable candle!
Pack your portable candle and use it when needed.
