Default DIY clay flower pot candle heater



Advertise Here

With such a small space you can use a kerosene heater. Burn the heater only in short bursts to save fuel, heat up the room then turn off for a while. Cover all windows and doorways with blankets to seal in the heat and to block out any drafts. Stay in the smallest room you can so that it takes less effort to heat and it stays warmer longer. Make sure you leave a small crack in a window or door to let in fresh air, remember to close it when you turn the heater off so you don't loose bought air.


You can make a candle heater like the one below, they work well for small spaces. We made a few of them and gave them to a group of homeless, they like them.

That is awesome. I have made quite a few stoves and heaters but I like how this allows you to retain the heat instead of just letting most of the energy get dissipated immediately.

Hello Harold,
I think I might have seen this several years ago. How long has your website been online?

Great idea though. Ceramic is dense enough to hold heat very well for a few minutes (in freezing temps).

I do not have a website. I copied and pasted from another thread to this DIY therad because I thought it applied and I did not want to lose it under other post.

This is the first I have seen any thing like this.

We have made about 25 total, my 2 kids age 10 and 13 can make them in no time. They set up a assembly line. The pieces are not hard to find and we buy them in bulk, we have even made a bigger version that can be used with the big gel camping sterno cans.
