Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Canola Oil, Citronella oil, Peanut oil, Liquid Parafin oil, Odorless Mineral Oil , Lamp Oil Every oil
Cordless drill with a 3/8 drill bit or a really THICK screw driver and hammer to pound it through the lid. We used a cordless drill and the screw driver and hammer method. The screw driver is really great for pounding out a starter hole so that the drill has a guide.
You can use the hammer later to make sure the metal is flat if it rolls a little.
Block of wood. You will want this so that you have something to pound or drill into.
Make a dot where you want the hole to go in the lid. If you are using the drill, make a starter hole with the screw driver first. Pound the back of the lid with the screw driver and the hammer. Put the nipple through the hole. After that is attached, twist your strip of t-shirt and then thread it through the nipple. It will expand a little after it is soaked with oil. At the end put the oil in and you are done.
For getting more fancy olive oil lamp you can infuse your oil with herbs, spices or essential oils also try infusing your oil with Pine Cones Cranberries Fruit like Lemons or Limes or Oranges, Coffee beans ,Vanilla beans etc for a more scented and Decorative experience.
