How-To: Make Your Own Firestarter

November is an ideal month for lighting a fire in your fireplace.

What You'll Need

  • paper egg carton
  • dryer lint
  • candle wax

After the wax has cooled, store the firestarters in a plastic bag to keep them clean. These are also great for starting campfires while backpacking.
