It’s cold, in some places there’s snow already but this time is magical and romantic. It’s the coziest time when you can gather around your fireplace with those that you love and enjoy some hot chocolate. A firestarter isn’t just a way to make a fire outdoors, indoors or in your patio, it’s also a cool gift for a wedding, a party or any other occasion. They are easy to make and they can be stored as long as you need – a perfect idea for fall or winter! I’ve prepared a whole bunch of DIYs to make firestarters that are cute and gift-worthy, they look very cute and chic. Let’s take a look!
The most popular idea is a pinecone firestarter as what can be more natural than a pinecone for a fire? These pinecone firestarters are so easy and satisfying to make, and by adding essential oils, like eucalyptus, pine, or cinnamon, you can make your whole home smell amazing and cozy. They also make a great housewarming gift, stamp some muslin tags and tie them onto the wicks.
For making fires you may create exciting pinecone firelighters, lightly scented with cinnamon. Pinecones look cute and a slight cinnamon scent is ideal to feel the holiday season or the fall and it makes your space welcoming and inviting at once.
If you live in the mountains or plan to visit a mountainous area soon, go on a pine cone-collecting mission. Then, make up a big batch of pine cone fire starters for your own use and to give as gifts. The process is easy and takes 30 minutes or less. I love the bold green color of the firestarters, it adds cheer to your fire, doesn’t it?

Of course, if have one of these fireplaces for the wall, you might not any overpowering smells to deal with. I totally love the cute pink shade of the firestarters, which is very glam. Enjoy!
There’s nothing more relaxing than cozying up to a flickering fire after a long day. Make things easier with the help of a fresh-smelling fire starter that pops under your logs or backyard fire pit.
