A new craft every day

Crayon Acorn

Recycle those old bits of crayon to make this fun fall decoration to hang in your window.

Supplies

Waxed Paper
Bits of leftover crayons
Warm iron in the hands of an adult
Scissors
Fishing wire
Brown Tissue Paper (optional)
Tacky Glue for Tissue Paper option

Instructions

Click on Printables and print out the acorn pattern or create your own.

Place a piece of wax paper over leaf pattern. Sprinkle crayon shavings (sparingly!) on wax paper following the design on the download.

Place another piece of wax paper on top of shavings and a blank sheet of paper or a cloth over that. Gently press down with a warm iron. Crayon will melt quickly.

Staple wax paper outside of the design area and under the waxed paper and cut out.

I added a line around the edge with a permanent marker for definition but it doesn't adhere to the wax paper very well.


I thought it would be fun to add tissue paper to make it look even more real, but it can be an option.


String up in the window with a piece of fishing line.
