Now here is a creative and one of a kind favor gift idea. If you were in the Girls Scouts you’ll remember the Pinecone Fire Starter favors. A great gift idea from the couple that loves to camp. A great addition to a fall or winter wedding.
• White Beeswax
• Dry Pine Cones
• Candle Wick
• Large Tin Can
• Sauce Pan
• Drying Rack
Create your own double boiler by placing a large tin can into a saucepan filled with a few inches of water. Melt your beeswax in the tin can completely. While you are waiting for the wax to melt, wrap the candle wick around each pinecone: leave a few inches of wick at the top and wrap it around the pinecone all the way down to the base.
Once your wax is melted and your pinecones are wrapped, dip each pinecone into the wax. You may want to use a pair of tongs to help rotate the can a little to cover the pinecone completely. Dip each pinecone in once and set on drying rack to dry. Once a little dry you can dip it in again until you get a good covering of wax.
