Note: To use them as candles on a birthday cake, first place wick string between the beeswax layers. To do this: Vertically press in the end of the candlewick above the skewer, so the skewer and the wick meet. Trim wick to 1 inch above the top of the beeswax star.
Beeswax sheets (Pictured: Honeycomb Texture Beeswax Sheets, $24 for 10, candlewic.com.)
Star-shaped cookie cutters
Create this celestial centerpiece by pressing two beeswax sheets together.
Trim out star shapes with cookie cutters. (Tip: If the wax is hard to handle, soften it using hair dryer on low.)
