Melted Crayon Hearts

I hope that everyone had a good weekend. I was able to spend a little time crafting and putting out some Valentine decor.

I saw these and knew I wanted to give them a try.

I pulled out some crayons in Valentine colors along with a pencil sharpener, wax and kraft paper. I layed a piece of craft paper under my wax paper. I then folded the wax paper in half.

On one half of the wax paper I used the pencil sharpener to make crayon shavings.

I then covered the shavings with the other half of the wax paper and then covered it with another piece of kraft paper. I then ironed over it until the crayons melted. (Be careful of the crayon running out of the edge of the wax paper while you melt them.)

I then used two different sized cookie cutter to make my heart shapes. I then put a hole in the top of each heart and strung three of them onto a piece of thread.

They look wonderful when the sun is shining through the window!

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!


  1. Adorable and really cozies up the room! Lovely!

    We have made wax paper/crayon creations before ~ I appreciate your warning about the crayons running over...I ruined an ironing board pad making some fun things that way. :-)

    We have been decorating our home for Valentine's this time of year!

  2. I remember doing this with our kids when they were little. What fun!

  3. So cute, Wendi! I saw your title and thought you made heart-shaped crayons like I did last week. You put bits of broken crayons in a lined muffin tin and bake. (Putting a small ball of foil in the top of the liner creates a "v") I'm going to give them to N+N for V-day!

  4. These look great Wendi! I haven't done this craft in a long time, thanks for reminding me of it!

    Have a great evening!


  5. They look so beautiful hanging in your window! I've wanted to try something similar to this with the kids but haven't yet!


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will return again!
