Beeswax Wraps

How to make Beeswax Wraps!

All you need is 

Beeswax

Cotton cloth tight thread

Pinking shears 

Grease proof paper 

Iron 

Ruler & Pencil

Old brush and baking tray if using oven 

 

This Saturday Natalie and I had fun making some beeswax wraps in our mission to use less/no plastic! 

It was so easy and so much fun!

Instructions

Measure your material into squares to a size you want, we did 8in by 8in and 12in by 12in

Cut out using pinking shears

Grate your beeswax 

Have your iron at the ready  

Place a large pice of grease proof paper on the ironing board 

On top place your square of material then sprinkle over the wax 

Place another pice of paper over the top and iron away

The heat of the iron melts the wax, you can manoeuvre the wax with the iron to cover all areas of your material

You can alternatively use the oven or the top of an aga 

When material is completely covered in wax stop ironing, peel back paper and lift up waxed wrap (careful as is hot)

Hold up to dry only takes a few secs, then rest over a chair back 

Hey presto you have made your beeswax wrap! 

Use your wraps to wrap left overs, sandwiches, cover food

Its amazing to wrap avocados
