project corona bottle tiki torch

objective:

so i decided to ornate my backyard with some tiki torches, and these puppies cost a whopping $2.50 each! bloody pricey for a canister of oil held in some bamboo sticks. heck, where i come from, bamboo is plentiful and free. hmm...technically, i'm from jersey, but that's besides the point! i need canisters, and i drink plenty of corona's. why not convert these into tiki torches?


procedure/challenges:

the bottle's cap is pretty thin, and using a phillips screwdriver with one hammer blow will pretty much do a good job piercing right through it. for the wick, i used a 1/4" cotton rope, and thread it through the hole in the cap. fill the bottle up with tiki oil, and you're pretty much set!
features:
to aid in the capillary action, i filled the bottle halfway with sand and glass beads, but river rock pebbles, or anything else, would pretty much work.

conclusion:
ahh...corona! the "light" beer...
project corona bottle tiki torch, passed!
