First, and one of my favorite ideas – sort the crayons by color, then melt them in a homemade double boiler…

Pour the melted crayon into molds (we used a chocolate mold)…

Let it cool completely, then when it slides out easily you’ve got cute shaped crayons!

Here’s the horse head mold we used!

One Response to 7 Cool Things You Can Do with Broken Crayons

  • I love that canvas art. I’d totally love to have it hanging in my living room. I like the horse head crayon you made. I actually have quite a few chocolate candy molds and never thought to make recycled crayons with it. Will have to give it a try.
