When I chose this week’s Pinterest project I thought it would be really simple, but boy was I wrong! I found the directions for a melted crayon candle during the heat of the summer and had to modify the directions slightly to accommodate the change in the weather.
First I gathered together my supplies – a candle wick, an empty glass jar, and 5 inexpensive boxes of crayons.
Then I sorted the crayons by color, and removed the wrappers from each crayon. (This part was really annoying. The wrappers kept sticking and were 2-3 layers thick.)
Once everything was finally unwrapped, I attached the candle wick to the bottom of the glass jar with a bit of glue.
When it had set for a few minutes I started layering in the crayons. I went with the ROY G BIV order, so I had to put the purple pieces in first…
Now this is where I changed the directions, because of the change in weather. I put mine on a cookie sheet in my oven and set the heat to 200 degrees and the timer for 15 minutes.
This is the result:
Not perfect, but I might try again with different crayons, of alternate wax, and a different color scheme.
