  • Mason or Ball Canning jars with lids
  • Tiki oil
  • Tiki torch wicks or large candle wicks

Step 1

Use a hammer and nail to punch a hole in the lid and then keep punching holes to enlarge that hole until you have a hole big enough for the wick to go through. Or you can use a drill and a large drill bit.

Your holes may not be completely round or smooth and that is ok. They will be hidden by the wick and you want them to be tight enough so that the hole “holds” the wick and it doesn’t fall back into the jar.

Thred the wicks through the hole.

Clean the labels off the jars if you are reusing jars. Fill with oil 1/2 – 3/4 full and screw the lid back on. Wait a few minutes for the oil to soak up the wick and light!
