Magical Mason Jar Oil Lamp

4 reasons we love mason jar oil lamps:

It takes only 2 minutes to make using vegetable oils and water!
Even safer than candles: if it’s knocked over, the flame would be immediately extinguished by the oil and water.
Bright and long lasting: 1 tablespoon of oil can last 2 hours!
In a more practical sense, these oil lamps are the perfect last minute decorations for dinner parties and festive gatherings!

Materials:

  • large floating wicks
  • vegetable oil: 1 tablespoon of oil can last 2 hours. Olive oil, sunflower oil, canola oil and many others all work well.
  • mason jars, glass bottles, water, and some decorative elements such as flowers, pine cones, pebbles, etc.

You can infuse your oil with herbs, spices or essential oils for a lovely fragrance!

Step 2: pour some vegetable oil on top, till the oil form a layer of about 1/4″ thick.

Step 3: Insert a piece of the waxed wicks half way through the center hole on the disc, and put it on top of the oil.
