Come on baby, light my fire- recycled fire starters

Image

My favorite time of year is any time I get to sit by a crackling fire.  It’s one of my favorite parts of camping and if you put the words “bonfire” on an invitation I will almost certainly be present. There is just something so magical about the ambiance a fire creates and the moments that occur when you are under its flickering light. 

Once the holidays roll around there can be no doubt that it is time to build a fire and gather round for cups of homemade nog to share the year’s memories and stories.   When the time has come to strike that match, I have a wonderful fire-starter project made out of your old toilet paper rolls and dryer lint!

Image

I have started to keep a little box by the dryer to collect the lint throughout the year and a little pail in my restroom to save the toilet paper rolls.  Simply fill the cardboard rolls with lint and stash near your fireplace.  

When needed, light the lint and you have a long-burning fire starter! These are great to stash in your camp box too!
