Let’s get crafty (and eco-friendly)! A beeswax wrap is an easy, sustainable alternative to single use plastic wrap wherever you use it. It’s super fun to create your own beeswax wrap using fabrics & patterns YOU choose. Plus, these make GREAT gifts. Read on below to see how you can DIY!

What You’ll Need

  • 100% cotton fabrics
  • Beeswax pellets
  • Jojoba oil
  • Pine resin
  • Jar
  • Iron
  • Parchment paper
  • Paint brush
  • Water

What To Do

  1. Cut fabrics to desired size (anything from 6” to 12” squares work well in the kitchen!)
  2. Mix 1 heaping cup of wax, ¼ cup of jojoba oil & ¼ cup pine resin in a jar.
  3. Fill a pot with water to half the height of your jar and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce the heat to a simmer and place your jar in the pot.
  5. Melt the mix! Simmer 10-20 minutes.
  6. Cover a cookie sheet or wooden board with a sheet of parchment paper.
  7. Add a piece of your cut fabric on top of the parchment paper.
  8. Paint mixture onto fabric & be sure to fully saturate the fabric square.
  9. Cover the fabric with a second piece of parchment paper.
  10. Set your iron to the cotton setting and iron away!
  11. Quickly lift the parchment paper and & hang your fabric to cool by itself for 10 minutes.
  12. Remember: don’t touch until dry!
