Put the cotton swabs in the container and add the alcohol. Make sure you put the container in the center of the mesh trashcan for it to work. Put the trashcan on “Lazy Susan” before you put the container in the trashcan. Once the flame is lit, give it a little spin for it to work. From there, you’ll see the flame eventually turn into the tornado.







You can make a larger tornado but it’ll be a bit harder. These are the materials needed:

  • A Big Metal Container/Bucket
