Take a glob of dryer lint and place it in a small cup
(like the ones that delis use for condiments),
pour melted paraffin wax that's been mixed with
a couple of drops of food coloring (I used to use melted crayons!)
and pour it over the lint, add a wick and let harden.
You can also add fragrance, we added cinnamon oil.

Thanks to Laura Larsen (and her Brownie background) for this recipe!
