The Try This File: Bottle Cap Candles

I have a Try This File.  Actually, I have several.  I have one of the old fashioned kind in a sketchbook with cutouts from magazines, I have one on my laptop, one in my internet bookmark list, one on pinterest, and I am sure I have others as well.
You have one too, don’t you?
Rebekah and I decided to tackle one on New Year’s Eve…bottle cap candles.  Here’s the original picture I re-pinned on pinterest.  It was a listing on Etsy.
Then I looked up directions on the internet and found this bottle cap candles TUTORIAL at Craftaholics Anonymous which may become a favorite site.

I recommend that you visit there for the step by step instructions to make your own.  
Here are ours before

and the finished product.

They look great, however, they don’t really burn.  What did I do wrong?


  1. What a great project. These would make awesome little gifts or decorations for a summer party. Looks like you did everything right. Thank you so much for visiting my blog a bit ago.
