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!)

Christmas shopping in Paris? I am so jealous!

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?!?!?

MissEm said...

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

Hi!

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. :)

Thanks!
