Earrings – Babybel Cherries

Ever wondered what to do with the wax from your Babybel cheese? Well we did and now we have a fun project for you to try.

What you need

4 Mini Babybel cheeses
2 6-inch lengths brown or green hemp string
round toothpick
2 earrings


First, wash the red wax wrappers from cheese rounds. Dry.


Place one wax half inside the other.

Roll both pieces into a ball. The warmth of your hand will soften the wax.

Repeat with three more wax rounds.

Next, poke a round toothpick through the center of each ball. Remove toothpick.


Thread earrings onto the hemp string and tie a knot to secure.

Then, thread ‘cherries’ onto string.

Finally, tie a knot on one end of the string and pull until knot meets the bottom of the cherry. Press knot into the wax.
