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.
A boy in my class a couple years ago gave these as little Valentines made out of melted crayons. He said, "For Crayon Out Loud, Happy Valentine's Day"... could also say, "You COLOR my world!" Use silicone cups to melt them in. baha love it<--- so cute, I have to remember this for dusty!!
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.
