Start saving up those toilet paper tubes, these are so easy, and they actually look kind of pretty, so they'll be nice even if you have guests over. I have mine sitting on the hearth of my fireplace. Without further adieu, here's how to make them.
|All you need is dryer lint, empty toilet paper tubes, and leftover tissue paper.|
|Every time you empty your lint screen from your dryer, shove it into a toilet paper roll. I just put my TP tubes in the laundry room so they're right there.|
|Start saving up those TP rolls, by the time it's warm enough to have fires outside, you'll have loads! Dryer lint is extremely flammable, so these will really flame up. But, they look kind of gross....here's my solution to that.|
|If you want to, you could tie them off using a bit of raffia, leftover yarn, cotton kite string, I just left mine twisted, but it's up to you, just make sure whatever you use is natural and will burn and not melt.|
|Taa-daa! A couple of these mixed in with your kindling will help get your fire started whether in the fireplace or outside, man, I'm ready for some bonfires, come on spring!|
I hope you enjoyed these fun and easy DIY fire starters, give them a try!
