Melted crayon suncatchers are a great way to use up old crayons and make something beautiful and new. Let the Kids decorate their own suncatchers, but assist them when it comes time to melt the crayon wax.
Here is the full video. You can also see the steps below in this blog.
Follow these simple directions to make your own suncatcher Crayon crafts.
SUPPLIES YOU WILL NEED:
- Wax paper
- Pencil sharpener
- Hole punch/ frame
Step 1: Gather some of your crayons and peel them off.
Step 2: Sharpen your crayons using pencil sharpener and pile up the shavings.
Step 3: Take your sheet of wax paper ( You can place your wax paper on top of the newspaper) and start adding shredded crayon pieces on top of it.
Step 4: Here, we tried to make a flower.
Step 5: Now, cover with another sheet of wax paper. Place the second piece of wax paper, equal in size to the first, on top of the crayon shavings. Line up the edges of the two pieces of wax paper.
Step 6: Set your iron on LOW and carefully run over the wax paper, the crayon pieces will start melting as you go. We put one sheet of paper towel on top of it. Adult supervision required for this step.
*Check the wax paper frequently during ironing to ensure that it is not burning.
Step7: Once it cools down, carefully take off the wax paper from the top.
*Wait for the melted wax and wax paper to cool before handling to avoid burns.
