Crafty: Beeswax Candles

Crafty: Beeswax Candles

My order of beeswax sheets just arrived from Knorr this afternoon. Let me just say for the record that 20 sheets of beeswax adds up to a box that is a lot larger than I expected. And with one sheet making about nine candles…yikes!

Between this and making honey cookies (preferably with this cutter) I have my work cut out for me! Maybe I should look for a craft-buddy on this project!

    I bet you could find some beeswax sheets over on your end of the pond! I had so much fun testing out my candles last night.

    (And thanks for the contest heads-up…super exciting!)

    What a great idea matching the theme of the candles and the cookies! Will you decorate the cookies? Are you really going to make 180 candles?!?!?

    I think I’ll just decorate the cookies with a little sugar on top…and yes, I’m really making all the candles!

    What a GREAT idea!

    I’m interested in knowing what size candles you make. I can’t tell if the candles in the image are tapers or cake candles. 🙂
