Equipment

  • Melting pot or a double boiler

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup beeswax pellets or grated
  • 3 Tbsp. food safe pine resin
  • 1 Tbsp. jojoba oil
  • Pinking sheers
  • Disposable, large paint brush
  • Melting pot or double boiler
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Clothes pins
  • Somewhere to hang to dry. These will not drip so they don't have to be outside.
  • Fabric for the wraps, cut to various sizes

Instructions

  • Combine beeswax, food safe pine resin and jojoba oil and melt. Use a double boiler, a chocolate melter that you use for crafts or boil water and add a mason jar to it.
  • While everything melts, cut the fabric to the desired size.
  • Add parchment paper to a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  • Once the wax mix has melted, place the fabric on the parchment paper and paint with the wax mix.
  • Add this to the oven for 2 minutes.
  • Flip the fabric over and paint the other side.
  • Hang to dry overnight and then you can use immediately.
