Beeswax Luminaries
« on: November 26, 2022, 10:24:51 pm »
For our Thanksgiving centerpiece this year I made some beeswax luminaries.  I got the idea from one of my favorite books for bee product projects, Beeswax Alchemy by Petra Ahnert.  To make them I filled some balloons with cold water and dipped them like tapers, setting them on my cold granite countertop between dips to create a flat bottom.  Then I untied or popped the balloons, which let the water out and peeled the balloon off the inside of the wax.  It was super easy and really fun.  I put my homemade tealights in them to light them up. 




 
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

I usually do full on candles for the Christmas table, but we may incorporate these into other decorations around the house, since they are so pretty and we have them around.
