Christmas Ornaments Crafts: DIY Melted Crayon Ornament

I’m excited to share with your a Christmas Ornaments Crafts project that you can easily do with your kids. I’m sure if you have kids then you have a pile of broken crayons, just like me. All those broken crayons just lying around can be unsightly and take up space, especially if you have new crayons always entering your home. This Christmas, make easy and cute ornaments out of those damaged colors. I’ll show you how to make your own DIY melted crayon ornament!

Microwave for 30 seconds in a microwave safe bowl. Remove from microwave with oven mitts protecting hands. Roll the colors around in the ornament and place in microwave again. Repeat process until the colors are melted and swirled in the ornaments as pictured.

Add embellishments as desired and you will have a great DIY melted crayon ornament using all those old, broken crayons that were no longer useable. Tie up your ornament with a big bow for your tree and you’ll be able to show of your homemade ornament each year. This craft is easy enough that your kids can help you get the ornament started and mix it up as long as you are careful about the heat of the bulb and hot wax inside. My kids loved watching their old crayon bits melt down and become something totally different.
