Step 1: What You Will Need
things you need
shredded paper (or pine shavings)
strike anywhere matches
wax (I use old candles)
a jar (to melt the wax)
a pot with water
Put the wax in the jar
put the jar in the pot of water
bring the water to a boil until the wax has melted
Step 3: Sharpen Match
use a knife to sharpen a match
Step 4: Pouring
pack the paper in the egg carton
pour the wax in to the carton filling each cup (use gloves while pouring the jar will be hot!)
now cut the cups apart
insert the match in the side
of each cup
( I first tried to put the match in the cup but they moved to much to light easily so I switched to the side it works much better)
now your done
I keep them by my wood stove they will burn for at least 5 min,
they are also good for camping.
