What you need
- Green crayons
- Blue crayons
- White crayons
- Muffin tin
- Take the paper off your crayons and break them up into small pieces. i like to use light and dark greens and blues. you can also add white if you'd like.
- Arrange crayon pieces in muffin tin. try to place the colors to next to different colors. fill about ¾"- 1" full.
- Place into 300º degree oven just until they fully melt. (about 20 minutes) don't let them stay in there too long or else the colors will mix up into one color and the wax will start to smoke.
- Let completely cool. I let mine cool on the stove top for 15 minutes and stick in the fridge for 15 minutes and they pop right out.

These are so cute Jill!! Thanks for sharing the tips on how to make them.

No, but I have one I use only for crafts.
I really love this. We're definitely doing this on Earth Day. Thank you.
I crush my old crayons and put them in a special heart mold that holds 12 little hearts and put in oven and they turn out so cool. The kids love these.
