FOOD WRAP &
Beeswax food wrap and bowl covers are a simple eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap. Learn how to make your own DIY beeswax wrap with this EASY tutorial.
- Fabric - Beeswax (block or pellets) - Pinking Shears - Baking Sheet with foil - Paintbrush - Oven - Tongs - Plate - Tape Measure - Cheese Grater (if using block of beeswax)
Cut your fabric in the desired shape.
Circular for bowl covers and square for sandwiches.
Lay fabric onto the baking sheet and sprinkle beeswax lightly over the fabric.
Place baking sheet in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
Check to see if the beeswax had melted sufficiently.
You can use the paintbrush to move wax around to cover any missing areas.
Dry beeswax sheets by either hanging them on a clothesline (I hang mine between the chairs at the kitchen table) or lay them on a wire cookie cooling rack.
To use your bowl covers, place the cover over the bowl and use the heat of your hands to press it down over the sides.
For sandwich wraps, fold them around the sandwich like wrapping a gift. Again, use the warmth of your hands to mold into shape.
