DIY Beeswax Food Wraps with Video

These beeswax wraps are super useful and great for the environment! Use them at home, give them as gifts, and keep working on reducing your plastic waste!

Materials:

Lightweight, low thread count cotton

100% pure beeswax pellets or block

Parchment paper

Baking sheet (with sides)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 225ºF.

Cut material into desired shapes.

Cut enough parchment to completely cover your baking sheet (I used some utensils to make sure my parchment paper was weighed down enough that the melted beeswax didn’t spill over the side).

Put cut out shapes on the parchment and sprinkle with beeswax pellets.

Put in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until all the beeswax is melted.

Remove from the oven and carefully lift an edge of the material with a spatula. Lift the material so that any excess beeswax can drip off.

Place material on a paper bag and allow to dry. It dries quickly and will only take a few minutes.

Once dried, use your new beeswax food wrap to cover leftovers, wrap sandwiches or snacks by shaping it with the heat of your hands.
