  • DIY Survival Projects Part 2: Survival Candle

    This next project is a long burning candle.



    Once again, we start with an Altoids tin.
    Cardboard strips are coiled tightly inside the tin, and then covered in molten wax.











    Cut strips of corrugated cardboard, thin enough to fit into the tin bottom and still be able to close the lid. Coil the cardboard strips into the tin as tightly as possible.
    Melt paraffin wax and pour it onto the cardboard in the tin. It will absorb quite a bit, so you'll have to wait until it's done, and possibly pour more wax in. Be careful not to burn yourself , the melted wax is really hot.
    When the wax starts to pool on top, stop pouring, make sure the top of the card board is still exposed.

    Pull up the end of the cardboard in the center and light it. It will act as a wick and burn the wax just like a candle.


    This candle will last for many hours. Use it for light, heat, to cook over, boil water, and it can be pulled apart to use as fire starting material.

    Stay tuned for more DIY survival projects.
