Make Something Sunday: DIY Beeswax Food Wraps

Make Something Sunday: DIY Beeswax Food Wraps

Thank you for stopping by Make Something Sunday, where we post a new craft every Sunday from our favorite DIY bloggers! We want to inspire you to create at home with simple and fun crafts. Let's get started! 

Today we are revisiting one of our favorite blogs from Midwest sisters Emma and Elsie, A Beautiful Mess! A Beautiful Mess is full of fun, handmade goodness. Today we will be making their DIY Beeswax Food Wraps. These beeswax wraps can be used to replace cling wrap; to cover a bowl or wrap a sandwich. We don't know about you, but we've been obsessed with finding reusable, eco-friendly alternatives for disposable products. These are made by lightly coating cloths with jojoba oil, beeswax, and tree resin to make the cloth moldable and sticky enough to stay in that molded position until you unwrap it. To complete this craft you will need thin cotton material, organic beeswax pellets, powdered pine resin, a new paint brush, a baking sheet and parchment paper, and an oven. Organic beeswax can be found at apothecaries or online. Powdered pine resin can be found on Etsy or other retailers online. 

The finished wraps are very easy to care for. Wash them by hand with mild soap using COLD water. If properly cared for, each wrap should last 120-150 uses.
