A new craft every day

Crayon Fall Leaf

It’s the first day of Autumn. Odds and ends of crayons find a new life when you make a whole series of these colorful fall leaves to hang in your window.


Waxed Paper
Bits of leftover crayons
Warm iron in the hands of an adult
Fishing wire


Click on Printables and print out the leaf 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.

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