Don’t Throw that Away!

Summer is just around the corner. Picnics, outings, backyard grilling and chilling all have one thing in common, those pesky bugs!  Use those empty mason jars for Tiki-esque torches that are green, cool, and easy on the budget. All you will need for this project is torch fuel, a wick (can be found at most retail stores), and a mason jar, any size.

Wine Bottles work great too!  Just need the bottles, 1/2″ x 3/8″ copper couplings, Teflon tape, wicks, and fuel.  Wrap the Teflon tape around the coupling enough to make a snug fit into the bottle opening, feed the wick through the coupling to the bottom of the bottle (which you have already filled with fuel).  Viola’ new funky table torches!

Happy Re-purposing!
