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!
