Invitation Wax Seal

Invitation Wax Seal

Wax seals give your invitations a lovely finish, however we can't all afford to have one custom made.

What you need

Piece of dowel
Decorative metal Button
Colored sealing wax
Super Glue


Start by finding a nice decorative metal button with a raised design on it.

Make sure your button has the ring at the back and not button holes.

Get some dowel the same size as the button from your local hardware store and using some pliers or strong scissors remove the metal ring from the back of the button so that the button will lay flat.

Then using some super glue adhere the button to the piece of dowel.

Melt some sealing wax. Use the instructions on your brand of wax.

Add a few drops of the wax seal to your project. Use the wax seal by gently placing it into the melted wax and removing. It should leave an impression in the wax.


  1. I always seal my letters with wax, but i use rubber stamps they work just as well! Also you can just light a candle and pour the wax down on the letter and press the rubber stamp in before it is completely dry!
    Kinda tricky if you haven’t done before.
