Default Crayon Candles

SUPPLIES:


Wicks
White wax
Glass jars
Wax boil bags
Old broken crayons


DIRECTIONS:

Use clear jars that are generally laying about the house. Pickles and jelly jars are excellent for this type of project.

You should be able to pick up the boil bags, wicks, and wax at a local craft store. Gather all your kids broken crayons and separated them into color schemes. (Try red and green for Christmas and then top them with gold and silver.) You can use a butter knife to tear apart the old crayons (for the kids). You can use a sharp knife that works much better.

The hardest part of this project is getting the wicks to stand up straight while you pour the wax. If the wick is not straight, the candle will not burn well, so try tying it to the top of the jar with twist ties. Try crossing them over in the middle in an "X" shape with the wick in the center.

After the jars are ready, melt the white wax in a boil bag. pour the wax, a little at a time, add the broken crayons to the mix. Since the wax is hot, the crayons melt, and the effect is very artistic! When you pour the jar full, top it off with a handful of some interesting color. The hot wax will cause the colors to "run" into the candles.
