My dad makes these great wick dippers out of wire hangers, and I’ve loved mine for years. Instead of smoking up a room when you blow out a candle, you can just dip the wick.
Dad has collected and perfected various tools to bend the perfect tip, and make interesting handle designs. It’s harder than it sounds; my bird ended up looking like lips, and my attempt at a 3-D handle looks like a tornadic mess.
I’ll leave this DIY to Dad.
