Melted Crayon Ornament

Melted Crayon Ornament


  • glass ornaments
  • crayons
  • pliers
  • hairdryer
  • Directions


First you need a bunch of peeled crayons in many different festive colors. Then, take off the top of the glass ornament, and put two or three small bits of crayon inside each ball. We found less crayon wax was better, since it doesn’t take much to coat the inside of the ball. It worked best when we used pieces about 1/2 an inch long. One of my favorite combinations was the orange, yellow and red crayons, which made an ornament that reminds me of a crackling fire. Then use the pliers to hold the end of the ornament and a hair dryer to melt the wax. Once the hair dryer heats up, it starts to melt the crayon bits so they flow inside the ornament. As the crayon wax melts, turn the ball to create swirling patterns. Once you are satisfied with the design, simply wait for the ornament to cool and put the top back in the ornament.
