How to Make DIY Wax Fire Starters

DIY Wax Fire Starters make a perfect gift idea or hostess idea.  They are fun to make and can be used in your wood burning fireplace for years to come. 

Several years ago, I made these adorable Merry & Bright Pinecone Fire Starters (LINK). Today, we are making them again with a slight variation.  Instead of pinecones, I have created this batch in muffin liners.  This gives you some flexibility to add some herbs to make your fires smell amazing!

Supplies

Soy Candle Wax (LINK)

Muffin Liners (LINK)

Muffin Pan (LINK)

Wicks (LINK)

Candle Making Pot (LINK)

Cinnamon Sticks (LINK)

These are super simple to make with the supplies above.  For this batch, I added rosemary, cloves, and cinnamon sticks, but lavender, orange peels or even essential oils would be great as well.  They are not only functional and pretty but smell amazing as well.

My biggest tip is to use a pan or pot that is only for candle making or wax projects like this.  It is really difficult to clean the pot of the wax after it's been melted.  You don't want to ruin your good ones, so invest in a candle making pot (LINK) or use an old pot you don't care about!
