Total cost for this project is about $3.50. The Dollarstore is your friend.
Items Needed From the Dollarstore
- Tealight Candles
- String (preferably string that is not plastic based. Yarn is best if you can find it)
- Disposable baking tin
- Newspaper (I like to collect the junk newspapers I receive for about 2 weeks before I start this project, that way this part is free)
- Razorblade/knife to cut paper
Step 1: How To Make Waterproof Fire Starters For Camping - Step 1
Roll up 5-6 sheets of newspaper and tie a piece of twine evenly spaced out about every 2 -2.5 inches. I find that I generally get about 11 Fire starters out of one roll. Once you have all of your twine tied, use a razor/knife to cut the newspaper into little sections so that each section is tied off with twine.
