The H2O Water Candle Kit allows you to create a custom candle with items you already have lying around the house. All you need are the kit, a glass container, water, and cooking oil!

To build your candle, fill any glass vessel with water, add a bit of coloring powder to get your desired hue, pour in a thin layer of cooking oil, and insert the floating wick platform. H2O Instant Water Candles create a flame that appears to be floating directly on the surface of the water!

It's easy peasy, and a perfect way to personalize any event, whether it's a wedding, baby shower, or just a cozy dinner at home.

Available in blue, green, orange, pink, red, and violet. You control the color when making your candle. For a darker hue, add more coloring powder. Each kit will burn for up to 300 hours!

Water Candle Kit + Cooking Oil = Floating Flame

With the Water Candle Kit, you can create your own colorful candle with just a container, water, and cooking oil.
The Water Candle Kit, a glass container, cooking oil, and water are all you'll need to create your very own water candle.

Step #1: Add water to any wide-mouth glass container

To begin creating your own Water Candle, select a wide-mouth glass container. You can choose to decorate it with rocks, beads, or even flowers. Then add water until it's nearly full.

Step #3: Pour in a small amount of cooking oil

The cooking oil is the fuel for your candle. You want to create a layer about a quarter of an inch thick.

Pour in vegetable cooking oil to create a quarter-inch layer.
Add any household cooking oil to your container.

Step #4: Assemble floating wick

Insert one of the eighteen included wicks into the center hole of the floating platform. Spread the cotton fibers of the wick and press it against a hard surface until the platform can stand on its own. It's now ready for flotation!

Insert one of the wicks into the plastic floating platform and then place in your container.
Insert the wick into the transparent plastic floater.

Step #5: Light and enjoy!

Finally, you will press the floater into the cooking oil so that it rests along the top of the water line. Light it and enjoy!

Light the wick and enjoy!
After you place the assembled wick into the container, light it and enjoy.

Cooking oil fuels your floating candle

What's so cool about the Water Candle Kit is that everything you need to complete your do-it-yourself candle is already in your kitchen!

Just grab a glass container (we've even done it with regular drinking glasses!), add water and coloring powder, pour in a bit of cooking oil from the pantry, and you're all set!

The cooking oil provides the fuel for your candle.
Your floating flames use the layer of cooking oil on the top of the water for fuel.

Achieve nearly any shade of the included color

Many parties (especially weddings) have signature colors. You'll have no problem matching your Water Candle to your event's color scheme with the included coloring powder. Simply adjust the amount of powder to match the intensity of the desired hue.

By varying the amount of powder, you can drastically alter the shade of your water candle.
