Make your own DIY reusable beeswax wraps in less than an hour with this quick project that’s perfect for anyone looking for a fun way to get rid of some waste in their kitchen. Plastic wrap is a pain to deal with—plus, it’s not reusable. These beeswax wraps can be used in place of plastic wrap to cover jars or bowls. You can even fold them into sandwich wraps and bags. The best part is that you can then use the wraps over and over again.
These DIY reusable beeswax wraps have a few key ingredients that are melted into cotton fabric. Jojoba oil is used to make the fabric soft and pliable. The pine rosin is used to make the fabric sticky so you can shape it around your container. Finally, the beeswax pellets are used to bring everything together, making the wraps safe for food.
This guide has you make wraps custom-sized to bowls or jars you already have. If you’d like to make the wraps a little more versatile, size the wraps using bowls or jars that are sized similarly to other containers you have, so one wrap could be used to cover many different containers when needed.
