It is inevitable, when you are making candles, you always end up with a little wax left over. This is a great way to use it up, or even to make these Pinecone Firestarters as a gift, or to sell at your next show. They are easy to do and are beautiful when finished.

A couple of tips we would add - bake your pinecones for about 15 - 20 minutes on low heat - as low as your oven will go, to kill off any bugs that might remain in them. Use canned air to blow off dust and debris to get them picture perfect!

You can display the dipped pine cones in a basket at your booth and let people choose. Red Hot Cinnamon, Frasier Fir, Evergreen, Christmas Tree, and Pumpkin Spice are all great fragrances to use, if you want to scent them.

What you will need for this project:
  • Old Muffin Pan
  • Twine (can also use left over untabbed wicking)
  • Scissors
  • Pinecones
  • wax - unscented or scented

Here is the video on how to make them:
