Melted Crayon Ornaments

Several friends told me about this melted crayon ornament idea, and it sounded simple and fun enough to try!

First, we shaved crayons (using a pencil sharpener for small shavings and a small knife for larger pieces).  We put the crayon shavings into clear glass ornaments.

Then we heated the shavings within the ornaments using a hair dryer (the ornaments are too hot to hold, so they are hanging from the snowman's hat).
This was a simple and fun activity, and the ornaments are beautiful!



  1. How cute are these. I love this idea. I have done the paint in ornaments before, but have never seen this done, what a great project! Thank you for sharing, just started following you.
