  • Terra cotta pots
  • Terra cotta plates
  • Heating ducts
  • Small jars
  • Birthday candles
  • A can of vegetable shortening
  • Scissors
  • Knife
  • Spoon


Step 1

Measure the candles by placing them inside the jar and checking for the right height, then cut the ends out accordingly, and set them aside. Fill up the jars with shortening pushing them down to fill all of the spaces and rooms inside the jar, then heat them up in the microwave for about 30 seconds or in a pan (shortening is flammable and shouldn’t be left unattended), push the top down gently, and insert the candles down the center of each shortening-filled jar.

Step 2

Leave them for about 20 minutes to cool down and set, then put them inside the fridge, and leave them for about 30 minutes or until hardened. Make holes at the bottom of each pot, then light up the candle jars, and place them on top of each terra cotta plate. Place the pot upside down to cover the candle jars, then put the ducts on each pot to cover, and position it to where you feel most warm.
