Low cost homemade DIY mini oil lamp / lantern from items found around the house. This video tutorial uses mini bottles but the same technique can be applied to most any bottle with a lid.
Items used in the oil lamp build:
1. Empty mini bottles with cap.
2. Cotton cord for the wick.
3. Clean burning Lamp Oil
You will need a nail and hammer or something similar to make the small holes in the lids.
Most people don’t need to buy expensive oil lamp burners that are brass plated high dollar lanterns. These little handmade oil lamps might put out all the light you need. They work great as a kids learning project or can help you get through a long power outage.
