It's Friday night, and you want to impress your date with something romantic. 

But also something creative — requiring minimal time and money.

Don't just use your face to push a meatball in her general direction.  Giphy

Believe it or not, you can make a sweet homemade candle using two things you probably have in your kitchen right now.

The magic ingredients? An orange and olive oil. If you have a clementine or tangerine instead of an orange, that'll work, too.

Step 1: Remove the peel from the top half of the orange.

Go slowly, making sure you don't accidentally tear into the peel surrounding the bottom half of the orange. You'll need it to be intact!

Step 2: Gently remove the fruit from the bottom half of the peel.

When you take it out, you should have a little bowl! The little nub in the center will become your wick.

Step 3: Pour olive oil into the "bowl."

Make sure you don't submerge the "wick" — otherwise, you won't be able to light your candle.

Step 4: Use a lighter or a match to light the "wick."

It may take a few moments to catch. The flame will start out small, but should grow over time.
