How to Make an “Everlasting Candle” from Crisco

Thought this would be an interesting project to try, and a fun family activity!



1 Can Crisco


1-3 Wicks (need to be longer than height of can, cut to match)



1)  Open a can of Crisco. The bigger the can, the better.

2) Insert the candle wick into the center of the can of Crisco. If the can has a large diameter, multiple wicks can be inserted. Leave a quarter of an inch of wick showing above the Crisco to make sure the flame is a manageable size.

3) Even out the top of the Crisco so the candle is smooth.
4) Light the wick and enjoy the candle.
