Here’s what I do when I want to craft something last minute, but still have all the fun of creating something from scratch – I decorate match boxes!
They’re the perfect size for a last minute Christmas gift, don’t take up much space and are the perfect utilitarian gift this time of year. I did these together with my daughter, who had lots of fun cutting scraps of paper and gluing sequins.
If you want to be really fancy you can gift these along with wax dipped pine cones as fire starters. It’s also super easy to do – just melt old candles in a jar in boiling water, or on low heat and dip the pine cones in the wax! You can dip them several times if you like, just for the look of it, but once is enough for fire starting.
