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