Craft 52 week 12: Cutie Candle

Craft 54 week 12:
I found this project over at Its in the Details!

Here's what you'll need:  A cutie, a knife, apple corer, some olive oil and a match or lighter.
Cutie tangerines, we eat a lot of these.  But who knew they could be used to make a candle?
Cut in half through the middle.
Take the sections out carefully.
The cutie should look like this.

The center of the cutie will be the wick...keep it intact.
Take the other half and cut a whole in the center.  I used an apple corer.
Here's what it should look like.

Fill cutie with olive oil, I filled mine almost to the brim.

Here's what it will look like.

Light wick, mine took a while to get started.

After you get the wick lit, place top on the cutie.  The edge of the whole might burn a light, please keep you eye on it.  When it does burn, it actually gives of a great scent too.


The cutie candle burned for over 4 hours.

I'm looking forward to making these for a summer party. Sprinkling these throughout the garden for a little shimmer in the yard.  

****Please be careful if you attempt this craft, it's fire and we wouldn't want to burn the house down!****
