idea for Christmas tree trimmings that the will keep the kids busytoo! Winter and Christmas is fast approaching. Why not turn your tree trimmings into delicious smelling fire starters. Rollup a pile and leave them on show as attractive little packets by your stove or fire. Fold a couple of sheets of newspaper in half and place a few sprigs of pine trimmings, a cinnamon stick and a pine cone in the centre. Brown paper gives a great effect too. Then roll the bundle up and twist the tube a little on each side of the lump created by the filling. Tie each end closed with a little twine. Place on your fire as you require and get that wonderful “ Christmassy” fragrance.
