The candle that never goes out and lasts FOREVER (easy recipe)

There's nothing quite as disappointing as settling in for a cozy evening, only to have your candle burn out far too soon. But fear not, this "forever burning" candle is easy to make, smells AMAZING, and lasts a really long time!

How to make a forever burning candle

Here's a simple DIY project idea from the YouTube channel "Simple & Fast" that's easy to do and uses common kitchen materials.

You can customize it into a decorative candle by adding gemstones, pearls, or other items in different colors and shapes. Plus, it smells great and can make your room smell lovely.


  • Glass cup
  • Gemstones, shells, pearls, or acrylic diamonds (in your preferred color)
  • Oil (olive, sunflower, etc.)
  • Essential oil (in your preferred scent)
  • Plastic bottle or metal can
  • Cutter
  • Scissors
  • Soldering iron, hot screw, or knife
  • Tissue paper


Step 1

  • Clean and dry a glass cup.
  • Place a few gemstones, shells, pearls, or acrylic diamonds at the bottom.
  • Add water until the gemstones are covered.
  • Pour oil on top until almost full, leaving about an inch of space.
  • Add a few drops of essential oil.
  • Cut off the bottom of a plastic bottle or metal can (I prefer metal can as plastic might melt), then trim it thinner with scissors.
  • Use a soldering iron or another tool to poke a small hole in the center.

Step 2

  • Tear a piece of tissue paper into smaller strips.
  • Roll a strip thinly and tightly.
  • Insert the rolled tissue through the bottom of the plastic or metal piece with the hole.
  • Cut off any excess tissue at the bottom.
  • Moisten the tip of the tissue in the oil and let it swell.
  • Place the plastic or metal piece on top of the oil, ensuring the wick doesn’t touch the water.
