How-to: Beeswax and Fabric Scrap Ornaments

beeswax ornament for ballet teachersΒ Because my five-year-old and seven-year-old can make these beeswax ornaments completely independently (if I rip the fabric into strips for them), we often use them as their handmade gifts to the adults in their lives.

One ornament with a nice note makes a good gift for a teacher or coach, one or two ornaments makes a good gift for those parents at whose houses the kids spend many playdates, and a set of four or six ornaments makes a good gift for aunts and uncles and adult cousins.

Don’t forget to remind the recipients to take a sniff of their new ornaments–they’ll love them even more when they realize that they smell like honey!
