Fire Starters


It is really cold here in the Northeast. It's below freezing! I wanted to start a fire in the wood stove, but I ran out of fire starters. It's the only way I can get a fire to start. So, being the "Internet savvy" person that I am, I googled "handmade fire starters" and found this recipe.

I had all the supplies on hand - old candles, wood shavings, and paper baking cups. I sprinkled them with pumpkin pie spice to add a scent.

They really work!

Those fire starters are great! I wish now that we had a wood burning stove instead of gas.

I'm going to try these over the holidays. Might be a good gift for the boys to make for their grandparents.
