hey girls,,, its nickie(: Well this tip shows you how to make a candle inside of an orange!! lol.
Well heres the tip>>>
What you need:
~Satsuma oranges with stems attached
~ olive or vegetable oil
~ a serrated knife
well,, step one:
very LIGHTLY cut a ring around the top 1/3 portion of the orange.(The stem side of the Satsuma will be the bottom and base of the candle) then peel of the top.
GENTLY separate the orange from of the peel with a spoon
Slowly work the spoon towards the bottom and separate the orange out from the sides.
**make sure you don't break through the middle.
Once the flesh of the orange is taken out, the pith connecting the outer stem should remain.
The pith is the wick of the candle. Snip the outer stem off with scissors so the candle can sit flat.
Poor a few spoons of olive oil into the orange, leaving just the very tip of the pith exposed. Use the spoon to submerge the top of the pith into the oil for just a few seconds. It’s now ready to be lit!
*** if you’re having trouble lighting the pith, it’s probably because it has too much moisture. Try letting the peel dry overnight (without oil) and don’t forget to submerge the tip into oil for a few seconds before lighting*****
Now you have your candle!!! The candle should burn for at least a couple of hours.
