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.

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!
