DIY Campfire Starters

3 Feb

So I saw this cool idea on Pinterest, from this blog:

and saved it to my Neat 4 Camping board.

I have been saving our dryer lint and decided to give it a try.  Here’s what I used, TP rolls and other paper tubes. junk mail and twine. I don’t know why, since you catch them on fire and they are gone forever… but I wanted them to be cute! So I stuffed the rolls, cut small squares from the junk mail, placed the paper over the both ends of the tubes and tied them off with twine.

That’s it quick, easy and effective. I took one straight outback to the fire pit and sure enough it worked great. I’m going to put some in our camping totes and maybe even use them for stocking stuffers at Christmas!

    Um, seriously? You are giving your friends/family DRYER LINT and TOILET PAPER TUBES for Christmas? There is not enough twine in the world to make up for that xmas-present fail, however well they may work in getting fires lit.

      Thanks for the laugh, it does sound bad when you put it that way. 🙂
