Summer's Glass

We've been playing with melted crayons for a few days.

Here's a pretty that we've had success with.

It only takes three or so crayons for a small glass (around baby food jar size). An' you'll need sunshine, or your oven if you prefer.

We set shaved and bits of crayons on a piece of waxed paper in the sun to melt.

And then rolled clean jars into them before they were completely melted.


Isn't that something???

So difficult and fancy.

And will look a right pretty splash of color on our shelves this winter, I figure.


  1. Melted crayons are so versatile, and fun to work with because of all the lovely colors. I think these made-over jars are beautiful.

  2. wowie!

    We will definitely be trying this one.


  3. stunning sun glasses!!!

  4. The vases are beautiful! Perfect for the shelves in winter!

  5. Oh cool, we got given a huge container of old crayons ages back that I mean to get around to doing something with. Can see this being a goer.

  6. How fun! We've done the crayons on hot rocks activity. My boys loved it!


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
