How to make Melted Crayon Ornaments

Melted Crayon Ornaments Step 1

Start by preheating the oven to 185 degrees. While the oven is heating up, peel the crayons and break into small pieces.

Line muffin tin with cupcake liners. Add 4-5 crayon pieces to each glass ornament. Place one ornament with opening facing up on each cupcake liner. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.

Remove muffin pan from oven and swirl each ornament until melted crayons coat the inside of each ornament. Work quickly because the crayons cool fast. If the crayons cool before you’ve had a chance to swirl them, just place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.
