The Amazing "Fire Re-Starter"

Introduction: The Amazing "Fire Re-Starter"

Ever had a fire go out and want to restart it?  well, with this easy to make fire re-starter you can (about 90% of the time)!!!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

First, get your materials:
1 piece of standard 8.5 x 11 piece of paper
7-8 pine twigs
12 (or so) matches
and some tape

Step 2: Add the Twigs

Next, put the pine twigs in a row in the middle of the paper.

Step 3: Add the Matches

Then put the matches on the twigs in any random pattern.

Step 4: Roll & Tape Together

then roll the paper onto a cylinder.  then tape the ends shut, and finally, tape the crevice. Also, you can add a "brand name" if you want to.

Step 5: Let It Work

After that, just put in on to the fire to re-start it.  It's also a great fire starter.  it should start/ re-start your fire!

Step 6: Additional Notes

Additional notes:
This one was not the best, i made a better one before.
You can also use a piece of kindling wood in the fire re-starter, but that's better if you want a fire starter.

    Green leaves are not particularly good at starting fires. It would be better to have brown, dry material. It's just going to make a lot of smoke without helping much.

    Imsvv, there is a "be nice" policy for a reason. Some suggestions I would make is maybe use a more convenient packaging method and use something other than tape (plastic burns and is bad for the enviroment!) other than that, great 'ible. I didn't know evergreen twigs re-lit fires..
