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.
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.
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.
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.
