Fire Starters – Easy DIY!



Need to start a fire?  I have the perfect solution to help you get one started!  These DIY fire starters are so simple to make, and you probably have the stuff to make them just lying around the house!

Whether you have a wood stove, a wood burning fireplace, or just want to have an outdoor bonfire these will help get your fire to take off!

Here’s what you need:

  • Cardboard egg carton
  • Dryer lint
  • Candle Wax


  1. Stuff your dryer lint into each egg slot in your carton until its full.
  2. Melt candle wax and drizzle the melted wax over the lint. (Use as much wax as you prefer.)
  3. When the wax has hardened, cut out each individual egg slot using scissors or box cutters.
  4. Throw into fire pit and light on fire. Then cover with dry kindling/wood.

I found that one fire starter (one egg slot) burns for about 5-10 minutes. As always when dealing with fire, be safe!
