5 Dirt Cheap “Space Heaters” You Can Build Today [STEP-BY-STEP]

3. Small Emergency Space Heater

This particular space heater is best for usage outdoors, but if you find yourself in a life or death situation, you could use it indoors as well. Just make sure that you are very careful with it and keep an eye on it at all times.

The only supplies you’re going to need for this space heater are an old coffee can or empty (never used) paint can, a roll of toilet paper, rubbing alcohol and a lighter or matches. Medium sized rocks and a terracotta pot are also recommended and will make the entire process much safer.

When you put all of these items together, you can make an open flame emergency space heater that will help warm up the immediate area. Again, always be extremely careful with this option, but be sure that you know how to make it just in case.

Special Tip: To put the flame from this space heater out in a hurry, simply cover the heater with a piece of aluminum foil that is large enough to go over the entire container. This will suffocate the flame until it goes out.
