Holiday Must Have! The Little Woodchipper #MadeinMB #ShopLocal

Are you looking for a great, local last-minute gift? The Little Woodchipper is a beautiful gift to give this holiday season.  Since I’ve been using The Little Woodchipper in my fireplace I am able to enjoy it more and they are so pretty and effective.  I discovered them on Instagram and instantly loved the look of them as it’s something I never knew I needed until I started using it.  It makes lighting my fireplace a breeze and these Pinecone fire starters are great for your indoor, wood stoves and outdoor fireplaces.

You don’t need to stress to find an old newspaper if you don’t have one, there isn’t a need for huffing & puffing needed to give it air.  I can sit back and watch the magic happen and no need to waste a whole box of matches to light my cozy fire.  Firestarter_3
What are they made of?
Firestarters are made of soy wax and wood shavings, only from fallen trees and old torn down barns. Vicki, the owner of The Little Wood Chipper picks every Pinecone- this goes all summer long.  Each one is washed and placed in the heat for ten minutes to kill any bugs. Each fire starter is packed with wood shavings and soy wax and topped with a Pinecone to make it look pretty.  (See my feature image) The plants are from Mother Nature and these beautiful firestarters last 30-40 minutes.

How to use:
Step 1)  Place your Pinecone or Bouquet firestarter on a flat piece of wood.

Step 2) Place the kindling on top and around and logs underneath and lite the little wood chips that are sticking out and around the pine cone. As when it melts, the soy wax will melt into the wood therefore creating a longer-lasting fire.  It’s that easy!

Step 3) Never put a Pinecone firestarter or Bouquet firestarter in a fire that is already lit!
