Simple Corn Stick Fire Starters
These are so easy to make! Let me see if I can explain it without confusing anyone!
Get one of those cast iron corn stick pans, I got mine from a garage sale, but if you need to, antique stores always have them.
Gather old wax candles, stuff you don't need, preferably in light or fall colors. If you have white wax, you can add some crayons to color them.
Gather some fall fabrics, rip in strips for the husks.
So, you melt the wax, and get it the colors you like. Ours were already scented, or you can add scent to them. Stick the center of the fabric strips, (use a couple pieces), in the end of the mold. Pour the wax into the mold and let set. When set, pop out of the mold, and there you have your corn sticks. If I remember right, Kristin's ears can hang up by their husks, so you could make a garland with them. She has them actually put together to form two halves together and tied with strips of fabric and a tag added.
OK Kristin, if you have some revisions, let me know and I'll fix it!! Love, Mom
