Using the pint sized mason jars punch a hole from the bottom in the center of the lid. This allows for easier installation of the wick. Push and twist the wick through the hole in the lid leaving 1/8 inch exposed.

    FANTASTIC IDEA! WE COULD EVEN RECYCLE OLD GLASS JARS WITH ORIGINAL LIDS. NO NEED TO PAY EXTRA FOR MASON JARS AND LIDS.
