2. Make an Oil Lamp

17-Awesome-DIY-Crafting-oil-lamp

Use a mason jar oil lamp. All you need is a jar with a lid, a cotton wick and some lamp oil. I made a hole in the top of the zinc lid with a nail and pulled the cotton wick up through the opening.

Then fill 2/3 of the jar with lamp oil and secured the lid. Let the jar sit for about one hour before lighting so the oil would soak up into the wick. You only need about 1/4″ of wick sticking out of the top to light. These little mason jar oil lamps are so easy to make and probably cost about $3.00.

A clean, clear jar (free of labels)
Photos
Ruler
X-acto knife or scissors
Pencil (optional)
STEP 1:

measure the jarMeasure how tall your jar is. If needed, trim the height of your photo to fit the jar (i.e. a 4?x6? photo will be too tall to fit in a 3? inch jar).

STEP 2:

insert the photoRoll up the photo slightly and slide it into the jar so that the photo will be right-side-up when the jar is upside-down. Poke it into place with your fingers or the eraser end of a pencil.

STEP 3:

BOTTLES: THE NEXT LEVEL

Bottles work just as well as jars, but they’re a little trickier. The photo won’t be able to unroll any further than the narrowest part of the bottle. There two ways to deal with that:

Pick a photo that looks good when it’s only an inch wide, or
make your photo no taller than the widest part of the bottle.
To use a bottle, roll up your photo tight enough to slip through the opening of the bottle. Slip the photo in right-side-up and maneuver it into place using the eraser end of a pencil.
