Melted Crayon Christmas Decorations

Melted Crayon Christmas Decorations

Recently we made these pretty Christmas baubles using sharpies, a laminator and this free printable. We had some templates left over and a lovely box of bright crayons to use, so we decided to experiment with them. This is how we ended up with Melted Crayon Christmas Decorations!

To make the decorations:

  1. Print and cut out the printable Christmas decorations (including cutting out the centre circle). Older children can do this on their own, younger children will need help.
  2. Dab a little bit of glue on the back of each Christmas bauble and stick it inside an open laminating sheet. The glue is optional – it just helps to keep the templates in place while you are working on them.
  3. Use the grater to create small flakes of crayon.
  4. Sprinkle a small amount of crayon inside each bauble template. Be careful not to over fill as the crayon may leak out into the laminator (see the template filled with pink, purple and orange on the bottom right of the photo above? That’s too much crayon… I speak from experience – eeek!).
  5. Close and laminate the sheet then cut out each bauble.
  6. Punch a hole in top of each bauble and thread with the ribbon

These Melted Christmas Christmas Decorations can also be used to make cute gift tags for family and friends.

  2. Did this in class today and had a ball. A bit of trial & error with the amount of crayon to use, but was all part of the fun.
