Survival Can-dle

Pipe tobacco cans are very versatile.  They have a great size and a close-fitting lid that screws on and off.  Much too good to just throw away when empty!  Look at this fine example:


Need ideas what to do with a tobacco can, besides storing matches, or a small sewing kit in it?  Here is an idea:  Make a survival candle.  All it takes is some paraffin (the kind you can pick up at just about any general store) and a bit of leftover wick or thick cotton thread, or even an piece of pipe cleaner, and hey presto!, you have a candle that doubles as a stove if need be.


Plus, it’s fun to make.  Try it out!
