DIY: Melted Crayon Pumpkin

Hey cupcakes! What would fall be without some autumn crafts? ;) I am a sucker for any pumpkin-themed arts and crafts, so I wanted to share a super cute decoration with you all today! Let's get started!


What You Need
-Pumpkin of any size (you can even use gourds!)
-Crayons of various colors
-Glue (NOT hot glue)
-Hair dryer
-Newspaper

What To Do
1. Lay out newspaper and make sure your pumpkin is nice and clean. :)

2. Pick out what colors you would like on your pumpkin. I think using oranges, yellows, reds, and browns looks visually pleasing, as this is a fall craft haha.


3. Use the glue to stick the crayons on the top of the pumpkin (near the stem). In my melted crayon canvas painting post, I mentioned how using hot glue will not work as the crayon will melt with the glue as you are trying to stick it on! This is the same situation.

4. Use the hair dryer to heat the crayons from above. This will allow the drips to fall naturally over the pumpkins without disturbing them.

5. Let the pumpkin and wax dry completely. Use as adorable room decor! :D
