Today’s great rustic wedding favor idea comes to us from our friends over at My Own Ideas a blog that has tons of great printable and resources. Today’s DIY tutorial is great for a camp style wedding or an outdoor type of rustic wedding and is the perfect favor for a fall or winter wedding. Think about getting all of your bridesmaids and girlfriends together for a craft night leading up to the wedding and make this project a group effort!
• White Beeswax
• Dry Pine Cones
• Candle Wick
• Large Tin Can
• Sauce Pan
• Drying Rack
Create your own double boiler by placing a large tin can into a saucepan filled with a few inches of water. Melt your beeswax in the tin can completely.
While you are waiting for the wax to melt, wrap the candle wick around each pinecone: leave a few inches of wick at the top and wrap it around the pinecone all the way down to the base.
Once your wax is melted and your pinecones are wrapped, dip each pinecone into the wax. You may want to use a pair of tongs to help rotate the can a little to cover the pinecone completely. Dip each pinecone in once and set on drying rack to dry. Once a little dry you can dip it in again until you get a good covering of wax.
