Beeswax Christmas Ornaments - CandleScience

Homemade holiday decorations are a great way to spend special time with your family and save money, too. Here's an idea for a last minute eco-friendly "Rosemary Tree" decorated with easy to make beeswax ornaments.


  • Yellow Beeswax Pellets 1 lb Bag (Qty: 1)
  • Pouring Pitcher 1 pc Pitcher (Qty: 1)
  • 8 Inch Glass Thermometer 1 pc Thermometer (Qty: 1)
  • Votive Wick Pin 10 pc Bag (Qty: 1)

Additional Items Needed:


  1. Heat 1 lb. beeswax in a double boiler or in a pouring pitcher on a hot plate.
  2. Cool to 170 degrees and pour about 1/2 inch beeswax into each mold. Let cool - this only takes about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Remove from mold and place on a hard covered surface.
  4. Heat a wire or wick pin to poke a hole in the top of each star.
  5. You might need to use a little scotch tape and needle to thread the jute through the hole. Trim any extra twine, hang on your tree and enjoy!

Don't forget to use the rosemary leaves later to spice up your favorite recipes.
