You've got your bottle of wine. Now, kick it up a notch and bring this charming kindling to your host.
I gathered to following items from around my house.
A few pages of newspaper - opened up and laid out
I added dried rosemary to this kindling packet. But, you could use cinnamon sticks too.
A handful of dried twigs from around the yard.
Some dried pine cones are great in the mix too.
I rolled the ends like a giant piece of candy.
I pinched the ends so I could tie them.
I used burlap to tie the ends,
and some cotton rope on other packets.
I tucked several kindling packets into an old rusty bucket, along with some pine tree cuttings.
I added a cute tag.
Ta-da! You could make a ton in no time. Leave them by you door to grab at the last minute when your heading out to a party or get together all winter long.
