20 Ideas for Homemade Crayons
Here are some tips for making homemade crayons:
- Silicone Molds. Use silicone molds to easily be able to pop your new crayons out after they are cool. Metal pans work too if you don’t have any silicone ones.
- Remove all paper. Be sure to remove all the paper wrappers before you make your crayons.
- Add glitter. You can add glitter to your new crayons to make them even more fun! I would put all the crayon pieces in first and then put glitter on top. It will sink to the bottom as they melt.
