Spotted: DIY Food Wrap
Need to pack a sandwich or some snacks for your kiddo? Make a DIY food wrap, and kick plastic baggies to the curb.
If you’re a regular reader here, you know that finding food-safe fabric for snack bags is a hot topic. Most water-resistant fabric is coated in plastic. No, thank you! Connie at Bird & Seed uses an alternative method to make her DIY food wrap water-resistant: she coats it in beeswax.
I asked Connie if she thought that candelilla wax would work in place of beeswax, but she wasn’t sure. Candelilla wax is a bit softer than beeswax, so it’s hard to say if it would do the trick in this situation. Any vegan crafters out there want to give it a go? Let us know how it works out for you!
If you want to make your own DIY food wrap, here’s what you need:
- pinking shears
- parchment paper
- grated beeswax (or a vegan wax alternative, if you want to experiment!)
