- Broken crayons
- Silicone heart molds
Gather up the crayon pieces and peel off the wrappers. I stuck with Valentinesy colors like reds, pinks, purples, white and gold.
Break them into smaller bits as necessary and mix them up.
Sprinkle glitter into the bottom of the silicone heart molds.
Fill each heart mold with crayon pieces.
Sprinkle a bit more glitter on top of the crayons.
Bake in a 300 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until the crayons have melted.
Remove from oven and allow to cook completely.
Pop out of silicone molds.
Wrap crayons in cellophane and tie with a ribbon and add a fun Valentine’s Day message. Or toss into a good bag or treat box.
