When I was young, I looked forward to a new box of Crayons. It was so exciting! Today I look forward to having the old and broken. Crayon Melts are very simple to do. These were made for the Art Bus's Birthday gift bags.
Step 1. Peel the crayons. I suggest soaking in warm water to ease the peeling process.
Note: Let crayons completely dry prior to beginning project.
Step 2. Separate by the crayons by color
Step 3. Place pieces in a zip lock bag and break up with a wooden mallet.
Step 4. Take your mini heart muffin tin and oil the hearts using a paper towel.
Step 5. Place pieces of crayons by color in the tin hearts. I over stuffed the hearts to melt at the correct thickness.
Step 6. Place Tin on a metal baking sheet. Note: This is a protective measure against spills.
Step 7. Set gas oven to 275 degrees. I'm not sure of the temp. for an electric oven. Place in oven.
Step 8. Set timer for 5mins. take a peek. reset timer for 5 more mins.
Step 9. Remove from oven. Let cool for 30 mins.
Step 10. When you can handle the tin, place in the freezer for 2 mins. The Hearts will fall right out.
