Home Made Crayons- Tutorial

Holly and I had a blast making these little crayons the other day, using all the broken and worn down crayons she had in her little crayon box. They were super easy to make, so I thought I would share the 'recipe' with you all.

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius
  • Take all your crayons, remove any paper and group into similar colours.
  • Break  crayons into small pieces
  • Place crayon pieces into small silicone moulds (I used one of those trays that you use to freeze baby food, as they were the perfect size and shape)
  • Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until crayons have melted.
  • Remove carefully from oven. 
  • Leave until completely cool before turning out of mould.
  • Go and colour something in! Enjoy. 


  1. What a brilliant idea. Just love that. Will keep this in mind next time I'm going through my girls craft box!

  2. awesome! i'm definitely going to hunt out those crayon bits and do this one!!! Thanks for sharing ;-P

  3. That is a fabulous idea, Lou! Those pesky little crayon remnants inevitably end up going into someone's mouth, so this is definitely something I'm going to try! Thanks for the tip -xo-

  4. This is a great project, I tried once before, and this post inspired me to try again!

  5. Awwww and I've just thrown a heap in the rubbish. I'm going to bookmark this and try with Miss 2 next time she chews the crayons.
    Happy Crafting - how is Christchurch faring now? And how is your darling Miss 2?
    I've started my Quilts To Cheer Christchurchs Kids on my blog - so here is hoping xxx

  6. Thanks for this idea - it's wonderful and getting my girls to take all the paper off the old crayons we have will keep them amused for a while :) Brilliant - will save this for a rainy day over the school hols

  7. Such a great idea! Thanks. I might just try this out for our church fete in November. The kids will love helping to make this as well.

  8. This is awesome!! Thanks for sharing! :)
