Citronella Whiskey Bottle Candles

As Andy was just sitting here singing “Andy had a good idea… Andy had a good idea” I probably have to give credit for this project directly to him.

Here are the supplies we used for this project…

As you can see, while I was trying to look up plans, Andy just went ahead and designed his own. Over achiever…

We bought the tiki torch fluid, wicks, and copper pipe couplers at our local Ace Hardware for around $7 total per candle. Not too bad! After that, we went ahead and used the original corks that came with the whiskey to hold the wicks. We used a Ryobi drill press to carefully drill holes through the center of the corks to put the wicks through.

I even made Andy let me use the drill press to do the second cork – something he was definitely not thrilled about. So little faith! It, of course, came out perfectly. Why does he ever doubt my abilities?

Whiskey Boo Boo of course had to come see what was up and interrupt my photo shoot…
