these are much appreciated!

My spouse and I used this kit to make old fashioned decorative scented olive oil lamps for baths and backyards housed in galvanized 'planters' for ourselves and some of those he works with this holiday. These wick assemblies come with instructions on how to fashion wicks from fabric scraps also. Due to time constraints and an old back injury I have we could not bend the wires ourselves to place the wicks in ourselves. So we really appreciated this kit since the wires are already bent and still were able to put our homemade touch on the lamps by placing the wick in them and adding pebbles and scented oils. If you think you can bend the wires easily you can order a 6 pack wick assembly and you will be able to see how to do it yourself. Even though these are described as votive size they fit great in quart jars in my opinion. We did lift ours up a bit higher with some washed pebbles. Essential scented oils added to the olive oil made it more special. We first lit ours in our backyard and have even enjoyed our outdoor vegetarian wood fired pizza, preparing it in our backyard at night with the sweet smell of the oils and the light of the lamps and our clean burning wood trimmings cooking fire that was stoked with my homemade charcoal. Those we gave the other lamps too expressed appreciation for them and one person said he was so inspired he will be designing his own oil lamps in his spare time on weekends so he can enjoy more of them.
