A great way to reuse and recycle old candle wax and paper is to make fire starters for your wood burning fireplace. We've assembled three different fire starter projects that you can make at home with materials you probably already have on hand or can get easily.
These projects make great homemade gifts. Place your fire starters in a wicker basket or cellophane bag with decorative ribbon. Add a card with directions and safety instructions and you've made a useful inexpensive gift with things you've reused and recycled from home.
