DIY Beeswax Wraps

DIY Beeswax Wraps

  It's no secret that everything costs a fortune nowadays.  Around here, one of the ways we save money is to re-use items whenever we can.  So when I saw reusable beeswax wraps popping up on social media, I was intrigued. While you can always purchase them, I was interested in learning how to make them myself.  It would be a perfect way to use fabric from my stash to make more as needed.  Read on for the supply list, how to and some important notes!
