    Cute valentines day craft:) Crayon Hearts 370K 30 Email Save Print View Gallery 1 of 3 « » We Also Love Valentine's Day Crafts Valentine's Day Crafts � � 1 of 2 Find More Crafting ideas Decorating ideas Good Things ideas Kids ideas Party decorations ideas Poor Okay Good Great Awesome Rate (144) Comments(51) Martha Stewart Living, February 2000 If the sun seems to peer right into your window, give it something pretty to look at -- and through. These translucent hanging hearts are easy to make from waxed paper and crayons. In return, sunbeams will color your room with cheer. Begin with a 12-by-16-inch sheet of waxed paper. Fold it in half along its length; unfold. Deposit wax-crayon shavings (made with a handheld pencil sharpener) evenly but not thickly across one half of the paper. Fold the clean half of the paper over the shavings. Crimp the three open edges with a 1/2-inch fold to hold the shavings. Protect your ironing surface with kraft paper. Place the waxed paper on the kraft paper, and cover it with another sheet of kraft paper. Iron lightly on medium heat, checking after every few passes. Stop when all the shavings have melted; let cool. Next, trace and cut out hearts of various sizes. String each heart with a silk thread for hanging.

I love the pretty translucent look of these leaves made with wax paper, crayons, and your iron. They would look so pretty hung up in a window where they can catch the light. This craft is fun for kids of all ages, and makes a fantastic free fall decoration.

Put crayon shavings (not too thickly) between 2 pieces of waxed paper. Iron lightly on medium heat between pieces of kraft paper to protect your iron. Stop when crayon shavings are melted and let it cool. Trace & cut out hearts of various sizes, string with silk thread & hang from dowel rod. Try Christmas trees/ornaments or Easter eggs/spring flowers too if you like.

Crayon Art- Ok I attempted crayon art this past weekend. the blow dryer was not fabulous, but it could have been the dryer only worked on low. however, I took a woodburning tool, held it to the end of the crayon, and perfect drips were accomplished.
