My good friend Amy over at MyHomegrown.net made some beautiful fire-starters out of beeswax, sawdust and cardboard egg containers. She got the idea from 3191 miles apart and ever since I saw them I have been dying to make them. I got two large bags of sawdust and wood shavings from a woodworker friend (DevosDesigns.com) and I had beeswax and cardboard egg cartons lying around.
Fill the egg carton with wood shavings or saw dust
Pour the melted wax over the sawdust filling the carton.
Place on your kindling, light and and enjoy your crackling fire.
