HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I am finally sharing one of my crayon projects with you. I've been making these fun shaped crayons for the past year or so but I keep forgetting to take pictures. These are for my son's Kindergarten class. I'm at my parents' house since Saturday and I have to give them a shout out for helping with peeling the paper off of the hundreds of crayons that I used. Once the crayons are free of paper, I break them up and put them in the jack-o-lantern shaped silicone muffin trays and bake until melted. Then let them cool down before putting in fridge for a final chill. The pumpkin tags are from the Cricut. I used Stretch Your Imagination and used a clear stamp for the Happy Halloween. I folded over the top of the bag and punched two holes through the tag and bag and then attached the tags with kraft ribbon. I added Stickles to the stem and leaf. I put the crayons in glassine bags before putting them into the paper bags. It's a bit time consuming to make these crayons, especially since I only bought two silicone mold trays, each one has six pumpkins on it, so I could only make twelve at a time. But the kids love them so that makes it all worth it!
Here's how they look, all packaged up. There are 21 children in his class, so I made 22 of these bags. Each one has 3 pumpkin crayons in it.
This is what the Wilton molds look like
I'd like to wish you all a fun and safe Happy Halloween! Here's my little helper, Domenic, in his silly Halloween pajamas.
