Firestarters are definitely a camping essential if you want to have quick, worry-free fires at your campsite. There are a few different ways to DIY these for cheap too, and you probably already have the supplies!
Method 1: With Toilet Rolls
If you’ve seen our toilet roll crafts, you may already have a stash of empty toilet rolls at your disposal! Now all you need to do is fill the rolls with dryer lint, then pour candle wax in the middle, and then wrap them in wax paper and store them in a dry place.
These are so easy and extremely effective. Get the full tutorial from Cascades.
Method 2: Egg Cartons
This method is identical to the one above except instead of toilet rolls, you’ll be filling an egg carton. Fill the singular egg slots with lint, pour wax over, and then cut out each egg slot for a single firestarter. Easy peasy!

Method 3: Sawdust Squares
If you have some sawdust, this is a neat way to make firestarters with it. Just line a baking sheet with parchment paper, fill it with sawdust, and then drizzle melted wax overtop. Once dry, cut the big sawdust rectangle into smaller square firestarters.
