Crayon Flower Sun Catcher Craft

Everybody knows that crayons can be used to make beautiful pictures, but did you know that those leftover bits and pieces of crayon can turn into beautiful sun catchers?


The first crayons were created with dry carbon black and different waxes. The first box of Crayola Crayons was produced in 1903 as an 8 count box. It sold for a nickel and contained the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. Source: Crayola –  What was the first crayon color produced?

  • Waxed Paper
  • Bits of leftover crayons
  • Warm iron in the hands of an adult
  • Scissors
  • Fishing wire
  • Beads (optional)
  1. Place a piece of wax paper over flower pattern. Sprinkle crayon shavings (sparingly!) on wax paper following the design on the download.
  2. 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.
  3. Staple wax paper outside of the design area and under the waxed paper and cut out.
  4. We added bead pearls to represent the center of the flower.
  5. String up in the window with a piece of fishing line.
