Molded Crayon Bracelet

We love taking our broken crayons and making new molded crayons in fun shapes.  Last week, we took advantage of the sweltering summer heat and made these Hot Car Crayons ~ a successful little experiment.  Now that we had a rainbow of new heart-shaped crayons, I wanted to do a little something special with them.  (Otherwise, I knew they'd end up at the bottom of our crayon container once the novelty wore off)

So, I made some super cute Crayon Heart Bracelets!




They were really easy to do, and cost next to nothing!  Here's what I did:


1.  Gather your supplies ~ molded crayons, some round cord elastic, sharp metal stick (I used a metal skewer, although an ice pick or something similar would also work).



2.  Heat the tip of your skewer over a flame for a few seconds, then poke it into your crayon to melt a hole.  If your molded crayons are pretty thick, you can make your hole sideways through the crayon like a bead.  Mine weren't quite thick enough, so I poked two holes so it would be like a button.  

Obviously, you'll want to be careful here ~ that metal skewer is sharp and hot!  I set the crayon down on the plate, then pushed the skewer down to make the holes.  Then I lifted it up to push it the rest of the way through.  I also found it helpful to wipe the melted wax off the skewer in between crayons so the color wouldn't bleed onto the next crayon.




3.  Do the same for all your crayons.




4.  Thread your crayon beads onto the elastic cord.  



5.  Tie the ends to form a bracelet and you're ready to go!  We made rainbow bracelets because that's what my rainbow-infatuated girls wanted, but you could easily make any color combination or add beads to make a necklace too!

Now you can color away!


Not only are the little bracelets super cute, but they're also a great way to bring a few crayons with you in the car or out at a restaurant, without having to worry about them rolling away.

  2. We have made so many crayons using molds, but never would have thought to turn them into bracelets. What a fantastic idea.

    I hope you'll share it on my meme.
