~Holiday Wax Fire Starters and Simple & Sweet Fridays #189~

I've been wanting to make some wax fire starters for the Fall.
Since the weather has been so hot in San Diego,
 I was dreaming of a beautiful bon fire 
we could have on the beach soon.
I know the time will change November 1st.
Even though I don't like it getting dark earlier,
 I can't wait for cooler nights!!
Our family always loves to have a fire in the Fall.
It tells us the holidays are near!!
Homemade wax fire starters are perfect
 for a camp fire or outdoor fire.
Easy to use, just place between dry logs and light the wick.
Great holiday gift too!
These are not for a gas fireplace or interior wood stove.
I bought a cupcake pan at the dollar store and
  had some candle wicks for a project.

I used some small pumpkin acorns, fresh bay leaves and cinnamon sticks and pine cones.
I added them all to some melted candle wax carefully
 poured into the cupcake tins.
They turned out so pretty!!
I wanted to use some antique molds.
I love their shape and thought they would look pretty too!

I'm so ready for the holidays now!!
Found a special Fall treat!
I love Trader Joe's!!
They're a festive look for the holidays!!
This was a fun and easy project!

Looking forward to seeing all your inspiring ideas
 and goodies this week!!
