I learned to make these in Girl Scouts and very 'green'. Cut toilet tissue rolls in 1/2 - so you hae 2 tubes. Stuff with dryer lint then stand on end and pour melted wax over them. I like to let one side set up then flip them over and pour from the bottom, too. The wax keeps them burning longer so the kindling has time to really catch.

I made 240. Still have about 400 tissue tubes to go but no dryer lint left.
