With the days getting colder and the nights growing longer, there is nothing like curling up next to a warm fire...except maybe giving a warm fire as a gift! We saw this idea for making Homemade Fire Starters, and thought that they would make a perfect homemade gift this season! All you (or the lucky person you give these to) have to do is light one end of your firestarter, place in your fireplace, and put a little kindling on top!
What You Need:
- Cardboard Toilet Paper Tubes
- Dryer Lint
- Newspaper (optional)
- Brown Paper
- Cotton String
This is a fun step for the kids to help with!
Once it is stuffed, roll the brown paper around your tube and tie the ends with the string.
Now you're firestarter is ready for your fire pit or fire place! Or make a few, put them in a basket with some marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate and you have a fun S'mores kit to give as a gift! Or keep some for yourself, curl up with a cup of Homemade Hot Cocoa and enjoy a warm fire on a cold night! Enjoy!
