Melted Crayon Art

Melted crayon art.


Use shredded crayons to make interesting faux stained glass works of art.

What You Need:

  • Wax Paper
  • Cheese grater or pencil sharpener
  • Assorted crayons
  • Iron
  • Piece of cloth
  • Construction paper
  • Glue

What You Do:

Put down a piece of wax paper, and grate or sharpen the crayons onto the wax paper.

Continue until you have a nice pattern that you like.

Put another piece of wax paper over the top of the crayon shavings, then cover with a cloth and iron gently until the crayon shavings melt.

Optional:  Use construction paper to make a frame. Cut the wax paper to fit the frame, glue them together, and you have your very own stained glass to hang in your window!

(My girls like to decorate the frames with feathers and pieces of colored yarn and sequins.)
