I’d like to think of myself as fire place savvy, but lets face it, sometimes no matter how much intention I put into starting my fire…it just wont start…I came across a super easy idea for fire starters. You have most of the materials in your house right now.
This is pretty basic. You need the following:
Wax. I used ends of candles or run off from candles.
Cardboard egg cartons. I didnt have any at the time so I used cardboard packaging from a humidifier we bought recently. If you use something bigger than egg cartons like I did just cut the edges to make it easier to break up later for use.
While you are doing that melt wax in a double boiler or if you dont have a double boiler just a pot would be fine. Make sure you stir often if you dont have a double boiler.
They work awesome. Granted the fire was already started in the picture below…I couldnt resist trying it out. Check it!
