DIY Up-cycle Crayons


Omg- How cute is this? What a perfect way to recycle broken crayons. I stumbled across this DIY crayon project by Jenna of Barnyardchic and instantly fell in love. It's the perfect weekend project to do with the kids. Visit Jenna page to see the step by step tutorial.

  5. I don't have kids and I don't use crayons...anymore ;), but this is such a clever idea it almost makes me want to buy some Crayolas and molds just to make some multi-colored heart-shaped crayons!

  12. Thank you for taking the time to drop by my blog. I love "discovering" new blogs. Yours is incredible. I've gone through several pages of previous posts and am just blown away. I don't have a creative bone in my body so I'm duly impressed by the amazing things you come up with using simple everyday items.

  22. So cute! Would it just be used as crayons? I'm tempted to do this, but I dislike coloring.
