They're super easy to make and are a hell of a lot cuter than plastic wrap!

Here's everything you'll need:

Thin cloth (in whatever size/pattern you like!)

4 tablespoons beeswax

2 tablespoons pine resin

1/2 tablespoon jojoba oil

To start, cut your cloth to your desired size and shape using pinking shears.

It's a good idea to have wraps in a range of sizes to cover different vegetables and containers.

Grate your beeswax, then add the pine resin and jojoba oil to the bowl.

Melt them in a bowl over a pot of boiling water.

Stir continuously until the wax is completely melted.

Next, lightly brush the wax mixture onto the cloth, working as fast as you can.

Once the cloth is completely covered, bake in a 210F (or 100C) oven for five to seven minutes. When the cloth has finished baking, brush off any excess wax and hang to dry.

Then, go enjoy your new beeswax wraps!

Plastic-free and pretty as can be.

Use them to wrap food or cover containers, just as you would regular plastic cling wrap.
