Pine cone fire starters

We have a lovely wood burner in my home, and go through tons of fire lighters that my Mum complains about because they 'smell'. So what's better than making some?!

For this craft you will need;
Pine cones
Tea light candles
Double boiler (or pan and bowl)
Muffin tray
Cake cases

First step is to melt your candles, make sure you remove any packaging, this includes the wicks as you will use them later. You will need two tea lights per one pine cone.

 Line your muffin tray with the cake cases.

And then fill 1/3 with the candle wax.

 Place your pine cone in the wax and place on two wicks into the pine cone, and make sure they're slightly into the melted wax.

 Let them set for a few hours, I put mine in the fridge to speed up the process.

Light the wicks to create a toasty fire!
