Displaying leaves and leftover beeswax

One of our favorite uses of beeswax is little molds for shapes befitting whatever our season. When we get ready to pour in the wax, we add some essential oil to the beeswax (lavender this time) and spray the molds with a cooking spray. Then we pour in the liquid wax and watch the shapes thicken. Before they completely set, we poke holes somewhere so that they can be hung as ornaments, sun catchers or gift packaging.
Once you get the leaves pulled up off the wax paper, you can string them on a thread with a sewing needle and hang them as a garland.
Not too shabby.
