Light It Up: Easy DIY Campfire Starters

As many beginner campers, and some skilled outdoorsmen/women, have experienced sometimes wood fires just don’t want to light. Maybe the wood is a little bit damp, or it’s too windy, or the fire gods don’t like your choice of graham crackers and chocolate. Who knows? Whatever the reason, when it happens, it’s incredibly frustrating. So this year, avoid fast-burning ripped up newspaper and matches that go out too soon and try one of these smart and inexpensive little campfire helpers!

With just a few supplies that you likely have around the house, these summer staples are nearly free and work as well as any store-bought starter.

According to the project, once you light the twine that’s wrapped around it, each campfire starter will burn for an impressive 15 to 20 minutes, allowing plenty of time for your firewood to thoroughly catch. This will, of course, make you the hero of the camping trip, and you’ll be well on your way to some marshmallow roasting, ghost story telling fun!

Ready to give it a try?
