Giving Generously: 40 Hour Emergency Candles

Here is a practical gift. Add a ribbon and a clever note  and this would be a great gift.

Place a book of matches and add a lid on it and you’ll have about 40-50 hours of light. These can be made for less than $2.00 if you are buying new jars, but less than $1.00 if you are recycling jars.

You could sell these for $5.00 easily, especially if you market them as “emergency” or “survival”  candles.

Go here to see how to make them (super easy), be sure to read the comment section, lots of great ideas.

Here are other frugal giving ideas!
