Self Sufficient Wax Crafts to Do
During the Pandemic

Make your pandemic isolations interesting and useful

Staying home during a pandemic does not have to feel boring or stressful. The time you spend at home can be used to take up a new hobby, such as wax crafts. If you do not have the wax and supplies for your project, you can always order them online to remain at home.

Here are several self-sufficient wax crafts to try during the pandemic.

Drink Charms

Are you looking for a way to add character to your table settings at dinner? Use wax to create your own drink charms, which are decorative pieces next to each glass or cup. You may want to create chocolate, fruit or heart-shaped drink charms to fit the occasion. Your loved ones can even write their names on their drink charms to use as a placeholder.

If you don't have jars of wax laying around, melt some old candles and give them
a new life creating self-sufficient wax crafts during these pandemic times.

Wax Warmers

Whether you are purchasing wax or repurposing an old candle, you can easily create your own wax warmers. Start by cutting the wax into small squares, and place the wax pieces into your wax warmer. If you do not own a wax warmer, you can find one online or in stores for a decent price. You can even use scented wax or an old scented candle as your wax warmers.

Homemade Candles

Creating your own candle is a popular wax craft among many people, and you can easily find the candle making supplies you need online or in stores. You can also find a variety of instructions for creating a standard or fun-shaped candle. If you do not have a candleholder, items such as wine bottles and mason jars are sure to do the trick.

Letter Seal

Another idea is to create a letter seal to enhance your letters and greeting cards. The materials usually include a candle or sealing wax, wooden dowel and wood-burning tool. If you are planning to send letters as a way of social distancing, a letter seal is perfect for your envelopes. You can even create more than one seal to change up the design.

One of the self-sufficient wax crafts that's easy to create is a letter seal, which can add
an interesting twist to your letter communications during social distancing.

Preserving Foliage

You can also use wax to preserve foliage such as leaves and flowers. Preserving your leaves is usually done with wax paper, but you can use actual wax to preserve your flowers. You can also find a range of easy-to-follow instructions for preserving your foliage online. This is a great way to create your own decor or store keepsakes for years.

If you are looking for self-sufficient wax crafts to try during the pandemic, be sure to keep the above list in mind.
