Let’s make beeswax leaf ornaments.

How excited I was to find a little silicone leaf mold at a garage sale the other day… I think it’s for chocolates but, of course, all I could see was beeswax!

Here are the beeswax leaf ornaments we made today… aren’t they darling?


First, we melted our beeswax in a homemade baine-marie (if you want to find out how to safely melt beeswax, please have a look at my other beeswax posts)


Then, we poured the melted wax into the leaf molds…


The wonderful thing about using a silicone mold is that, as you can see, you don’t have to be perfect!


When the wax had cooled slightly, I inserted a skewer into the leaf, making a hole in the wax for the hanging ribbon.


When they are fully set, pop the leaves out of the molds, string them on ribbons and hang them in a special place in your home.


Ours are hanging from our chandelier and the warmth from the lights warms the beeswax, sending it’s sweet aroma around the room… hmmmmm, it’s wonderful!

Blessings and magic,
Donni

  3. Wow, chocolate molds, what a great idea!
    We just harvested our honey yesterday so in about a week when the honey has dripped off the wax, and once we use the double boiler to melt it down…we will have our own WAX. I am really excited! This is our first year having bees.

  4. beautiful ! I will be dipping more beeswax candles next week and may just pour some for autumn decorations. I have a similar mold and may also get a head start on Christmas by pouring some for my old fashioned German wax molds

  5. Just catching up! Brilliant! I am amazed at how lovely these look and I just bet they do smell wonderful.

    We had so much fun with your seed cake project recently. I love how they get firm enough to use on the indoor tree! And now these! Definitely making some.

    Thank you for sharing projects that make my holidays richer.

  6. Hellooo! I found your wonderful site and wanted just wanted to say thank you for all the posts! Can you add essential oils – eg, lavender – to the beeswax?
