DIY Fire Starters
by Cheryl L. McClure
Place your 2 qt saucepan on the stove and heat the water to boiling. Add chunks of wax to the can and make sure it's heavy enough to sit in the water without tipping over, otherwise you'll have to hold it with tongs like I did when I got down to the last bit of wax.
Melt the wax through and carefully lift it out of the pan of boiling water holding it carefully with your glove. As far as I'm concerned, there's no room for error on this part!! Too hot and too messy to clean up not to mention if you were to get burned you would not be a happy camper!
Pour gently onto each filled dimple, heating, melting and pouring until all are filled.
Allow to cool and set. It won't take long. Started with the box cutter, cutting down each row through the raised parts and then turn over and score between each filled piece. You don't have to cut the entire thing all the way through, just enough to make it easy to tear them apart.
I hope the moons and stars align for you too so you will find this activity practical and useful in your home during the cold winter months. And if you're in a sunny location, you could always use them to fire up that chiminea on the patio!
Have a good one!
