Handmade Christmas Decorations : Beeswax Star Bunting

With the first Advent Sunday being so very close , we have slowly started to ready ourselves and our home for the beautiful Season ahead.
Today we made these lovely star buntings, they are easy to make, though they do involve a hammer and dripping wax from a candle, so, as always, be safe!

A hammer

String
Candle for dripping wax

How To:

Place your cookie cutter on a sheet of beeswax and push it down firmly,
then use the hammer to gently tap the cookie cutter until you have cut out a star shape.
(If you find this difficult you can warm the beeswax sheet with a hairdryer for a few seconds.)

Keep cutting out star shapes until you have enough for the length of your bunting.

Arrange them under the string and drip wax from a small candle onto the back to attach the string to the stars.

When the wax is dry you are ready to put up your bunting.
We put our’s over our fireplace, the beeswax makes the whole room smell sweet,warm and inviting.

You could also make a few single stars to hang in the window, or make a really long bunting to decorate your tree.
Have a lovely day!
