Make Your Own Smoking Rocket Incense Burner

Incense: if I burn enough of it at once it helps hide the fact that I haven’t taken the trash out in a while. And what cooler way to burn incense than inside a rocketship? Instructables user nomadecraftsanddreams created these detailed instructions for how to construct your very own leather rocket backflow incense burner. Prepare for blast-off!

For those of you unfamiliar, backflow incense cones have a small hole drilled through them that allows smoke to enter, cool down (becoming denser), then exit the bottom cascading downward, in this case making the rocket look like it’s smoking on its launchpad. Heck yeah, outer space, let me just stock up on astronaut ice cream and I’ll be right there.

The Instructable primarily consists of cutting leather to the appropriate shapes and sizes, then dying the pieces the color of your choice, and stitching them all together. It sounds simple enough, but I’ve never worked with leather before. Although I did own a pair of pleather pants in college that I wore too close to a bonfire and partially melted to my legs, so I’m pretty sure I’ve got this.
