Scented Wax Gift Tags
Activity DesignerMelissa Allen
Our house smelled so beautiful as we dipped gift tags into the rose smelling wax! What a wonderful accent to add to a gift for someone special.
What You'll Need
How We Did It
The wax beads we used were soy, but any kind work for this. We also used some plastic tweezers that we've designated for art use only. (It's hard to remove the wax afterwards, so I wouldn't use a good pair of tweezers for this.
We added the wax beads to a tin pan, and I melted the beads by holding the pan over a candle. You can do this over some hot water or another heat source, but this is definitely a grown-up only step!
This is a step that needs grown-up supervision, too! Once the wax was melted, my daughter (with my guidance the entire time) dipped the gift tags and shapes into the wax with the tweezers. The wax solidifies pretty quickly, so you have to melt it again pretty much after each tag, but it was easy to do.
