More Beeswax Ornaments today

I wanted to share with you some more of my beeswax ornaments. I love working with wax, and these are so fun to make. I was up till about 2:30 last night making these. Just when I thought I was going to bed, I find that my daughter's puppy had gotten hold of one of my bottles of black paint and chewed a hole in it. Found black paint all over one of my favorite quilts. So I didn't make it to bed by 3:00 like I had planned. Had some cleaning to do, washing a quilt and wiping up black doggie footprints all over the house.
Remember there is still time to enter my giveaway, look in my previous posts to find the details.
We are drawing a name on Friday night. I will have a couple of extra prizes to give a way also to a couple of additional runnerups.
First off, I used my Santa Mold and got some of these prim Santa's made. These are a good size ornament and heavy. I may make tarts out of these , even though they are a little larger than tart size. I know some of newer tart burners, seem to take larger tarts.

Next, I made a little candle light holder and stuck a candle light in it. I dipped the candle lights into the beeswax and sprinkled them with cinnamon. I think a tree decorated in these would be so prim looking.

I found this mold on ebay, I love the way the keys look, but I think they will be too fragile for the shows. They are really thin in the middle, I think I need to find a harder wax for these. These would look great as Santa's keys.

I purchased this mold last year and never got a chance to use, it is a little snowman hat. I used blackened beeswax and rubbed cinnamon on it. Added a piece of stained cheesecloth around, and then glued on some holly berries and cedar. I put another little candle light in the top of this one. I still need to add a tag that say's "Frosty's hat".

These little shoes make the perfect tarts or ornaments. I string 2 together and hang on a little prim tree with the little prairie dolls, from a previous post and they looked adorable.

This is my newest mold I found, a little gingerbread couple, I think I need to make them a little lighter though. I want to poke a hole in the tops of their heads and strip some homespun through for an ornament.

I received this mold a couple of molds ago, and just now got around to using it. I actually forgot I had it. These are big girls and kind of heavy. I want to have a bunch of these made and have them displayed in a old dough bowl.
