Make Your Own Candle Heater (Great for Home or Office!)

Are you the one in the office that wears five layers and dons mittens while everyone else complains they’re cold? Do you have a studio that seems more like a refrigerator? Even with proper home heater maintenance, some rooms can still be a bit too chilly.  create a candle heater. Light, portable, decorative, and oh-so-easy, you will feel toasty warm in no time.

using ceramic pots to make heat

How it works

Simply put, you are trapping the heat given off by a small candle and concentrating it in a metal and ceramic construction. The ceramic then radiates it to your room, much the same way an electric space heater works.


  • 3  unglazed ceramic pots, each smaller than the next by at least 1”
  • Metal washers: two extra-large, three large, three medium, and eight small
  • Seven nuts
  • One bolt, long enough to connect all the ceramic pots.


Use the washers and nuts to create a tower of metal on the bolt inside the three pots, being sure to space the pots apart with the nuts and washers. It should look something like this:

You may find a simple stand at your favorite home store, or you may construct one out of brackets. It should house the candle of your choice (either a tea light on a platform or a candle jar) and elevate the pot construction just above the flame.


Please bear in mind that the pot construction will get very hot. Also, never leave a candle unattended, under any circumstances.

If your room or office is still a bit colder than you’d like, give this little candle heater a try. Get creative and mix up colors, or use scented candles to give your room a great fragrance while keeping cozy. For the best heater or ac repair in Las Vegas, contact Windy City Air at 702.932.7284.
