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.

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
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.
