We love making new crayons out of old broken pieces. We made heart-shaped crayons last Valentine's Day and got so many compliments. So this fall we decided to buy some fall baking molds and make these leaf- and pumpkin-shaped crayons.

How We Did It

Leaf-Shaped Crayons

Peel off the crayon wrappers. If you want the colors to be fall-ish, stick with red, orange, yellow, brown, and gold hues.

Leaf-Shaped Crayons

Separate the broken crayons into baking mold. My tray is a Wilton fall one that I bought at Michaels for $10 (and then used a 50% coupon on it--it was a good deal!).

Leaf-Shaped Crayons

Bake in the oven at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes (or until completely melted). I set mine in a baking dish to make it easier to remove from the oven when they were ready.

Leaf-Shaped Crayons

Allow the crayons to completely cool in the baking mold before removing the crayons. Then pop them out and color away! We give these as gifts a lot because kids love crayons...and this project breathes new life into broken pieces of crayons.

Loving the leaf shaped molds! Great idea. Perfect for Fall! We'd love to include this project as part of our upcoming post of our favourite uses for old crayons at www.sustainmycrafthabit.com.

Shaped crayons are so expensive in the store, so I was really excited to try this. I used a heart-shaped muffin pan to make some for party favors at my niece's 5th birthday party. Huge hit!
