As you all get to know me, you will notice I am a sucker for a few things. One of the MAIN things I will lay down easily for is a great candle. I am truly a candle-burning person. One of the things I LOATHE the most is when I spend money on a candle and it doesn’t stink good! Why burn a candle if it doesn’t smell up my house, right? Well… you will be SO happy I told you about THESE bad boys. For YEARS my go-to candle was anything by ARCHIPELAGO (whom I still love and recommend) BUT… I was given a TYLER candle as a gift and I was blown away. Tyler candles are about 20 bucks for the 22-ounce size (so they are cheaper than everyone’s beloved YANKEE CANDLES) and they smell better and last longer than any other candle I have EVER bought and that’s saying a lot, TRUST. You can find a retailer here, it’s worth the 20 bucks, I PROMISE!
Then there are these scented candles with alcohol in them that burn for age and ages. I have also tried them in a metal container. One of my favorite candles to use is the “Alka Seltzer” which comes in a metal tin. I have also used alcohol in a tin container. Both work fine for the purposes of this instructable.
For this instructable I will use the Isopropyl Alcohol 100 container. It is a metal container with a lid and is meant to be placed on the stove or on a fire to burn the candle(s). The bottom lid of the container needs to be removed before you burn it.
In the above picture I am using a metal container for the alcohol and I have left the lid on the bottom for this instructable. The lid is made to look like a lid on a tin can, which is why it doesn’t look as nice as the metal tin containers listed below.
