There are a lot of fire starters out there, but these are cool and can have them as a decoration in the house if nothing else, until you need them. This DIY project is creative and practically free. These dipped pinecones are so easy that this can be a really fun project with your kids, too!
Usually pine cones are everywhere. Just take a trip out to the country and you will find millions of them (actually come to my house, we have hundreds laying on the grass). They burn well and are often already dry. Check out how to make some kick-ass fire starters for a few dollars.
