DIY Ornaments Week 7: Old Fashioned Beeswax Ornaments

Posted by on 19 December 2011 in Be Inspired, Make It | 1 comment

This DIY ornament is so quick and simple… and brings a really cute old-world charm to your tree. You can also use these as little gift toppers to make a package extra special.

Start with a sheet or two of beeswax – any colors you like. I get mine from The Candle Factory – the only place I ever buy candles from. Huge selection and unbeatable atmosphere. If you haven’t been there it’s worth the trip!

Choose a few cookie cutters – we went with a variety of snowflakes – and cut through the beeswax. You may need to push up from the bottom as well to make sure the cutter has gone all the way through.



Punch a small hole in each ornament (i used the end of a knitting needle) and string a ribbon or some yarn through. And you’re done! Like I said, simple and old fashioned – sometimes that’s a breath of fresh air!
