This project has been on my list for a while now and I’m so excited to finally make these tiki torches from Lucky Buddha beer bottles. They just look awesome! And they’re the perfect backyard lighting and decoration for summertime.
• Lucky Buddha beer (6-pack)
• Tiki torch fuel
• Tiki torch replacement wicks
• 1/2″ x 3/8″ copper coupling
• Sealing tape
Step One: Drink beer!
Enjoy a refreshing Lucky Buddha beer with friends! Make sure to save the bottles. Wash and let dry.
Step Two: Prepare the copper coupling
I found both the copper couplings and sealing tape at Home Depot. The first step is to wrap sealing tape around the smaller end of the copper coupling. You want to wrap enough tape around the copper that it will seal around the bottle opening. Insert the tape-wrapped copper coupling snuggly into the bottle opening.
Step Three: Fill with tiki fuel
Using a plastic funnel, fill each bottle with tiki fuel. Then insert the wick. Let wick soak up the fuel for a few minutes before lighting.
