The cold weather is here! As I was browsing Pinterest I found these neat little homemade fire starters. I thought since it is also hunting season I usually send my hubby with something special I’ve made. Whether its a yummy snack or a simple I love you note tucked into his gear. This year I decided to make him these neat little fire starters.

What you’ll need:
Cupcake tins
Wax paper
Wax (I grabbed a large jar candle from the dollar store)
Bamboo skewer
Lint from the trap in dryer

Melt the wax carefully the way you feel most comfortable. In this case I placed the jar in a pot of water and carefully heated it until it melted. Cut the wax paper into enough squares for each cup of the muffin tin.
Stuff each cup with lint
Break the skewer into six pieces and use one in each cup. Carefully pour the wax into each cup using the skewer to hold the wax paper down.

Allow them to cool and there you have it! 🙂
Till next time keep it crafty!
