Fragrant Sawdust Firestarters

This activity is fun for the whole family and would make a great gift for friends, family, and neighbors who plan to warm themselves by a cozy fireplace or fire pit this winter! You will need a muffin pan, cupcake liners, sawdust (or dryer lint), wax, wicks or string, and some fragrant and pretty decorations like orange peel, cinnamon sticks, pine cones, or star anise. Place the liners in the muffin pan and fill each one 3/4 full with sawdust or dryer lint. Add your decorations and the wick or string. Melt paraffin, bees, or leftover candle wax in a glass container in the microwave until it is liquid (this won't take very long!) and pour it over the contents of your cupcake liners. Once the wax hardens, they are ready to be used. Put them in a clear bag, tie it with a ribbon, and give them to your favorite fire loving friends!
