It was a beautiful day, although somewhat chilly at 50 degrees. I relaxed by crafting. A favorite project of mine is to make ornaments out of beeswax. The process is as important as the product --- the fragrance, texture, and color of natural beeswax is quite soothing to work with. I purchased the beeswax from a local bee farmer. It's a byproduct of honey production and he makes wax cakes out of it that he sells for a very reasonable price (about $6.00 per block).


  1. Do you have examples of the beeswax ornaments? We would love to see some!

    Have a blessed day,

  2. OOOOPS! I just scrolled to the next post with the clay molds...thought to myself....those would work well with beeswax, but didn't look any farther. I found it and I love them....they are you keep them from year-to-year or do they melt. Sorry for all the questions....I just love projects like this from natural materials and I had not seen these before!

    smiles, kari and kijsa (really just kari this time....I won't blame kijsa for the silly question)

  3. you can also purchase old fashioned german design wax molds for making ornaments, they are easy to use and the ones I have are religious in nature, angels and nativity scene type pieces. I like the idea of using the cookie molds

  4. Oh, my, you are so talented.

  5. Hi, I know a bee farmer not far from him. I plan to find out if he sells the blocks of wax. I appreciate your superior ideas. Cindi
