DIY Mason Jar Oil Lamp
What You'll Need
- A jar with a lid
- A cotton wick
- Some Lamp oil
- Make a hole in the top of the zinc lid with a nail and pull the cotton wick up through the opening. You only need about 1/4 inch of wick sticking out of the top to light.
- Fill 2/3 of the jar with lamp oil and secure the lid.
- Let the jar sit for about one hour before lighting so the oil will soak up into the wick.
- Tip: a cotton shoelace works great as a small wick
