What you need:

– large white pumpkin (real or faux)

– Tacky Glue

How-To (Hair Dryer):

Crayon Melted Pumpkin

1. Glue your crayons in place with the tacky glue or glue gun. Glue is needed to grab the curved surface. Use wherever needed to hold the crayon in place.

2. Place your crayons around the pumpkin. You can either choose to do this all at the same time, then wait to heat or heat as you go. This depends on if you want to see the look as you go, or you know the desired outcome of colors and combinations.

3. Apply heat on high using a hair dryer. The wax tends to splatter, the higher the temperature. If you’re getting too much splatter, lower the heat.  It takes a little under a minute for each of the crayons to melt and drip.

How-To (Candle) – Credit Robin Wulf:

1.  Unwrap wrappers of crayons
2.  Place newspaper under pumpkin
3.  Light a small to medium size candle (for these I used long skinny tapers from IKEA)
4. Tilt your lit candle to the side in one hand and end of crayon directly to the flame in the other over top of pumpkin. (for a more kid friendly version use a hair dryer method above instead of candle)
5.  Rotate crayon all around pumpkin as you watch it mix with the candle and crayon wax over top onto the sides of pumpkin, keep moving pumpkin around to drip crayon wax to all the area you want covered
6. Repeat with each color can keep reusing each color to add more color to pumpkin.

Have fun trying different color combinations, plastic spiders, goggly eyes, glitter and more!
