Tiki torches for Your Home
Tiki torches are an excellent way to add a tropical flair to any outdoor gathering. They provide a sense of being in a tropical paradise instead of just in your backyard. Tiki torches are relatively inexpensive.They are a great low cost way to create a mood for a party or just to add ambiance for you while relaxing in your backyard after a long day work or over the weekend.
Tiki torches come in a variety of styles but the most traditional type is made from bamboo or cane. Traditional bamboo tiki torches are around 5 feet (1.5 meters) in height, although the height can vary slightly depending upon what style of tiki torch you buy. It's little touches like that which add up to an eye-catching, contemporary torch sure to add flare to any evening garden party.
Bamboo Tiki torchesÂ usually have a pole made from bamboo or another natural material with a plastic bottle at the top of the pole hidden away inside a woven cover. On top of the woven section of the tiki torch there is usually a black metal "roof" or cap that covers it. A heavy wick is threaded down through a hole in the top of the metal cap and into the plastic bottle. Inside the plastic bottle there is fuel which helps the tiki torch to burn more efficiently. You simply light the section of the wick that is sticking out of the top of the cap and you can have light for a long time.
If the wick grows too short you can pull additional wick up from inside the plastic bottle, making sure that the torch is not lit while you do this.
Tiki torches are a great way to light up the yard with glimmering gold firelight. They make any garden feel like a tropical paradise and are great for parties, receptions, special occasions or just for the beauty they provide. You may find that birds like to sit on your tiki torches when they aren't in use, which can create a mess on the lids.
Although bamboo tiki torches are beautiful, they should always be kept away from children and flammable objects. You should keep a fire extinguisher on hand at all times when you are burning them in case of accidents.
