First you will need to gather your supplies. Old crayons, and a sharp shredding object (here we have a grater in the picture but we found the pencil sharpener to work much better,) and you will need wax paper.
You will need to take all the wrappers off the crayons.
Then lay out a sheet of wax paper and start shredding.
Much better with the sharpener.
Layer with another piece of wax paper
Melt!! I used the polyester setting and that seemed just right. Also you WILL want to put a pressing cloth or towel over and under your project you don't want any leaky wax escaping.
Trace and cut
Connect. I stapled mine together but you could punch holes for lacing string, or you could sew them together. I opted for quick as we were near nap time. Hang and admire, I love the way the light catches the wax it is so pretty.
