DIY Beeswax Ornaments

Christmas is right around the corner - just two months away!  Yikes!  Being the mom of two little girls has given me a renewed appreciation for handmade ornaments, and I especially love finding projects the three of us can do together.

I'd heard some colleagues talking one time about beeswax ornaments, but I was initially hesitant.  After all, wax is much messier than soap.  However, after discovering how incredibly easy it is moulding beeswax in silicone moulds, I thought, this wouldn't be bad at all!  The gear is simple:  Beeswax, measuring cup, pot of water (these two items will create a double-boiler set-up), mould, fragrance if you want it and twine or ribbon for hanging.

Here is a great video on how to make these quick and easy handmade ornaments that my colleague David Fisher posted.  If you make these for yourself or as gifts for the holidays, I'd love to see them!  You're welcome to post them to the Sara's Soaps 'n Such Facebook page so we can all ooh and ahh over them.
