These make great Christmas gifts with just a little work.



Tools needed

Cut your small log to length. With hole saw a little bigger than the diameter of your tea lights cut holes in one end of the log. This is your top. Now take the log and turn it over and run it through your table saw to take off a small slice so it will sit flat. Turn back over and put in your tealights. At the other end of your log on the top drill a hole the size of your decoration and glue in place. Add some ribbons and this card:

Light the first on Christmas Eve,

To light the way for Christ so all may see,

Light the next On Christmas Day to celebrate your joy,

That God sent us his own baby boy,

And now light the third on New Years Eve,

It will bring in good luck as the New Year leaves.

Recycle metal coffee cans by making firestarter kits with them. I have friends and family with fireplaces (who also camp). I've made the firestarters with melted candles over sawdust in egg cartons and pine cones before. Toss them in baskets from the Goodwill.

This year I plan to paint the cans with winter scenes and place the firestarters inside with mint twigs for fragrant kindling, long matches and a long lighter, and pair it with a yule log. They can also fill the empty can with water in case the fire gets out of control
