Crayons

Cookie cutters (metallic ones!)

Kitchen foil

Stove

String (optional)

Directions

Remove paper from the crayons

Plane or grate crayons

Wrap cookie cutters with foil so it has secured bottom

Fill the forms with crayon scobs

Put in pre-heated oven

Watch them melt

Take them out, let cool

Remove from the cutters

You can still draw with them! Or gift to somebody! Or use them as ornaments!

Tips: 1) If you want to add some elements such as sequins or gemstones or hangers, do it when it’s almost cool but still soft. If you do earlier your embellishments may sink :)

2) Use bright colors crayons. Dark colors interflow and all look the same “some dark color” at the end.

3) Do not use too high temperature so colors do not mix up but form beautiful wash-out :)
