Melted Crayon Ornaments

Christmas is just around the corner and Sprinkles (my pet unicorn) and I have been busy trimming the tree and decorating our house. As we were stringing our tree with some beautifully bright lights, we realized… we forgot to pick up some ball ornaments. So instead of running to the crowded store full of holiday shoppers…. we decided to make some homemade ornaments for our tree. Colorful of course. I had a package of clear empty ornaments from a craft last year so we thought it would be perfect. Look at how pretty they are:

They were simple to make, but you will need to assist any children who may want to help as it does required using a hot blow dryer. If you also have a pet unicorn… you will need to assist them as well. Those darn hooves tend to get in the way.

Here’s what you’ll need:

– Empty Glass Ball Ornaments

– Crayons

– Blow Dryer


Let’s get started…

1.) Peel a few or your favorite colored crayons and break them into small pieces.

2.) Place a piece of crayon into your ornament and apply heat to your crayon from the outside of the ornament. When the crayon begins to melt, swirl the ball around so it forms a pretty pattern. (Note: Make sure you wear an ovenmit…. it gets hot!)


3.) Repeat until you reach the desired color pattern and discard any remaining crayons hunks from inside your ornament.


4.) Place the top back on your ornament and hang it on your tree. Bam.

I hope you are enjoying your holiday season. Merry Christmas

Love, Nickey & Sprinkles
