Scrap wax, paper egg carton, sawdust or dryer lint, and the usual
candle making supplies. Paper cups may be substituted for the egg
carton if you wish a nicer look.
Accumulate scrap wax. This can be leftovers from candle
projects, or remains of burnt candles. Place in a double boiler
and melt to 180 degrees F.
Fill sections of egg carton halfway with sawdust. Place
carton on a pan or wax resistant surface - some wax will almost
always seep through the carton. Although these can be made without
sawdust, it greatly increases the burning time.
Fill cups with saw dust or dryer lint.
Pour melted wax into egg carton slowly. Allow
The finished fire starters. The finished
fire starters may be broken off for individual use as needed. To
use just light the edge. Told you they were ugly!!
