Winter has decided to join us again in Sydney for the day, so it seemed like a great time to do a craft project which has been on my lovely long list of things to do and share. These roll your own beeswax Christmas Tree candles are a great craft activity to do with kids (or inner children), make great gifts for teachers/friends/family/hosts or you could simply use them to decorate your own table.
Step 1 - Cut the sheets of beeswax in half
Step 2 - lay 3 sheets of wax end to end
Step 3 - use a straight edge (eg a wood mounted photograph from your trip to Africa) from the top LH corner to the bottom RH corner
Step 4 - cut the sheets as shown
Step 5 - roll the wax over the wick starting at the widest point of the beeswax sheet (be neat... it will determine whether your tree is round or not)!
Step 6 - Join the second sheet on where the first sheet finishes and keep rolling
Step 7 - Join the third sheet on where the second sheet ends... you're almost there now!
Step 8 - marvel at the brilliance of what you and nature can create together
Step 9 - Bee created festive season ambience. Clever bees. Clever you.
