A holiday hearth kindling arrangement is practical as well as decorative. You can make these arrangements with kindling you gather yourself, or use purchased logs that burn with beautiful rainbow colored flames. These arrangements will be appreciated throughout the holidays and far beyond as the receivers of these gifts use them to start cozy fires throughout the winter months.
Arrange the 6 logs in a pyramid. Use thin lines of hot glue to hold them together. You do not need to use excessive amounts of glue because this arrangement needs to break apart if someone wants to use the kindling. It should not take more than about a minute for the glue to dry.
Tie the red felt ribbon around the pyramid. Make a large, pretty bow. You may wish to use wire-edged ribbon to make the bow hold its shape better. If you wish, hold the ribbon in place with several spots of glue. As before, do not use too much glue.
Accent the bow with the silk poinsettia flowers, cinnamon sticks and evergreen sprigs. You can use more glue to hold these in place. They will make your arrangement smell wonderful and make it look festive for the holiday season. Do not stint on the accents, as they will make your arrangement appear fuller and give a room more holiday spirit.
Give a friend, neighbor or loved one your holiday hearth arrangement. They will enjoy the Christmas spirit it adds to their home decorating and appreciate the thought and hard work that went into the project.
