In this video, you’ll see how you can make an emergency candle (or an everyday candle if you like the scent of butter) from a stick of butter and a piece of toilet paper. So, put a stick of butter in your freezer and a roll of toilet paper in the cabinet under your kitchen sink. While many people rely on a flashlight in case the power goes out, those only provide light as long as their batteries last. Candles can be pretty expensive, which is why most of you probably resort to flashlights during a power outage.
Been making candles for quiet sometime this Emergency DIY Candles will help a lot during sudden brown out. During an emergency, when the electricity is off, it’s important to have a way to charge our mobile devices to keep in touch with loved ones. In other words, if you are stuck in your house with no electricity, if you can find these two things, you can make a light source. I would think a stick of butter (or a partial stick as you’ll use in this lifehack) would burn super fast, but apparently it will burn for several hours (especially if your butter is frozen). These items are generally available at craft stores, but people may already have some of them at home. To be more efficient, it is often recommended to prepare the wicks ahead of time, cutting them and having them ready.

Next some people just prefer to melt the wax in a double boiler pan others are more comfortable using a dedicated wax melter for temperature control. Pour the wax into the jars making sure the wick stays centered and fill to about ?” from the top. Using a few basic supplies, these candles can easily be made and home and put away until needed. But when your batteries run out, you're out of luck, unless you know one of these methods for making a DIY emergency candle out of household junk.In this video, I cover 5 different DIY emergency candles using cheese wax, butter, a tuna can and oil, a wax crayon, or an orange with oil. Cheese Wax CandleRoll up a strip of newspaper into a tight thin roll and wrap it in cheese wax.
Tinned Tuna in Sunflower Oil CandlePierce a hole into a can of tuna in sunflower oil and push in a short length of cotton string. A few basic items that you might already have around the house and some preparation time are all that is needed for candle making. There are many variations that can be utilized to make candles, but these items should provide all the necessary pieces.
When you cut them make sure to leave enough room to be able to tie it off on a stick or pencil and so that it reaches the bottom of the jar. A simple double boiler is taking two different sized pans and boiling water in the larger one while setting the smaller one in the boiling water.

Allow the wax to cool completely then untie the wicks from the pencils and trim the wick to ?” long. If you are using old candles the actual cost is minimal but they can be extremely valuable when the lights go out. I suppose some people might want to make these to use in their homes in non-emergency situations.
Tie the wicks off on the pencils and dangle them in the center of the jar with the pencil keeping them in place. Now you can use the candle or even put lids on them and store for emergency situations of camping.
Once you have the wax ready to pour into the jar set the prepared jars in an easy to fill row.
