The wick of the water candle will be suspended inside the jar between the water and a thin layer of oil. Remove the wick from a candle. Find a glass jar that you would like to use for the candle and cut out a thin plastic disk that will fit inside of the jar. Make a small hole in the center of the thin disk. knot the wick about an inch from the top and then put the wick through the hole.

Step 3: Putting it together

Fill the jar with water leaving about half an inch empty. Then place the plastic disk and wick on top of the water in the jar. Pour the cooking oil on top of the plastic disk making a thin layer of oil. The water candle is ready to be lit. This candle should not be moved once it is lit so position it where you want it to be before igniting it.
