DIY Fire Starters
Pinecones can make good kindling
Here’s an easy way to light a fire using what Mother Nature leaves on the ground. Tie a length of twine or candle wick (available at crafts stores) to the base of a dry pinecone, wind it between the scales, then snip it off at the top to create a wick. A basketful makes a nice seasonal display on your hearth or mantel.
