Ahh. It's finally campfire season! While I would almost always choose to hang out in the air-conditioned comfort of my living room, I LOVE me a campfire. It's the one anomaly in my "indoorsy" personality. My husband and I used some gift cards and saved up money to buy a small firepit and some camp chairs for our yard, and last night we had our inaugural fire.
To make sure the first fire didn't fizzle, I made up some super cheap firestarters yesterday afternoon. Chances are you might have all the necessary elements for these firestarters in your house right now!
To make Super Cheap Firestarters, you will need:
a large metal can, like a coffee can
dixie cups or a pressed paper egg carton
Before we get started, the Ick Factor of the photos of this project is higher than usual, so if you are squeamish, you might want to just buy some pre-made firestarters at the store!
