Crayon and Giants crafting

Before I was fully awake this morning, I fixated on using tiny crayon bits to make heart-shaped crayons.

I’d always wanted to do this, so I could never bring myself to throw away even the tiniest bit of broken crayon. After baking at 350 for maybe 12 minutes (checking every 2 minutes), they seemed to have melted.

After a few hours, I popped the new crayons out of the silicone molds and oh! They’re pretty!

Later on, very last-minute-like, I whipped up a knitted headband for SF Giants’ Day at the Wee Girl’s school tomorrow.

Then I knitted a flower from the headband in Stitch n Bitch Nation, and sewed it on. This? Along with a black t-shirt (no Giants gear for kids was left on the shelves at Target! None!) will be her outfit for tomorrow.

  1. Thanks! The crayons were so easy and the kids are loving them! Silicon molds are amazing, the heart shapes popped right out! The girl’s teacher gushed about the headband, so I think I’ll make her one, too. 🙂
