Feeling Crafty... A Post Written Mostly With Pictures

 So, here's what I did today!  I am so proud.  They are going to be for my students @ Valentines!  I think they are going to be tickled "pink" when they see them.
I am so excited with the way they turned out {did I already say that?}.  So...  run, don't walk... to the nearest Target and hit up their dollar bins... it's time to get crafty!  Hope you all had a great Wednesday... and don't forget about my Erin Condren giveaway {it's ending soon!!!}  Side note:  you must put your silicon molds on a baking sheet before putting them in the oven.  You cannot just put them in the oven... for obvious reasons!  :)

  3. I absolutely LOVE making crayons! I've used them as gifts for my students, in my son's birthday treat bags, and even made ones of paw prints (my son's preschool was the Lions) for my son to give to his classmates at the end of the year! They are so fun! I love your idea of melting colors together, I usually do one color on the bottom and one color on the top. I'll have to try your method next!

  4. Those turned out cute!!... Love the pic of the star wars legos. My little boys are in a stage where that's all they play with. Nothing else is acceptable. Those little blocks hurt so bad when you step on them barefoot!!

  7. I Love these too! I made these last year for my first graders, and I took an exact-o knife to the wrapper. Sooo much faster and easier then peeling!

  8. SO fun! I have some pumpkin ice cube molds a few years ago...thanks for the idea for the fall! SO FUN!!! :)

  9. Awesome project, Stacy! I'm curious - did the crayon hearts just pop out of the mold? :)

  12. Love these! Thank you so much for sharing with us! I have always wanted to try to do this!! I love the boy colors...I have 3 girls and the rest of my class is made up of boys! Thanks for sharing the process and the finished product!

  13. What a great idea! I love it! I always refresh my crayons in the classroom at the beginning of the year and after 9 years I have a huge bin of half-broken crayons. I'm going to Target this weekend!
