Wax Paper Crayon Hearts

Saw some wax paper crayon hearts on Martha Stewart awhile back and thought they'd be fun to make.

Here's mine...


I used crayons leftover from raising our two girls. Yup, still have them in a drawer in the basement.

I shaved some red and white crayons onto a sheet of wax paper, covered it with another sheet of wax paper. Then I put these two pieces between two pieces(top & bottom) of newspaper and ironed. You can read better instructions on Martha Stewart. Here hearts have less shavings and are spread more evenly.

 The windows in our breakfast room is a perfect place for them.



Little wax paper crayon hearts might be fun hanging from the chandelier, as well.The big ones look so cheery on this dreary day.
Hope you had a fun weekend! 
Wish I could say the same :(    I really can't stand not being able to fix something. Are you the same way?

  11. Hi Pam!
    Those are so cute! I hope things are ok with daughter in Cal. I know the ups and down since my daughter has been on her own (or semi-on her own)
    for a little while.

  19. I came by to visit your blog after you left a lovely comment on our and I am so glad I did. I love this project. I have been thinking that I'd like to do something with my 10 year old daughter craft wise for Valentine's Day, but I needed an easy project because to be honest, I lose her attention really quickly when we do crafts. This is PERFECT! We have SO many crayons all over the place. We can recycle and craft together. Thank you for sharing the project idea.

    I think we've been following you for awhile now, but I don't think I've ever left a comment before.
    Love your blog!

    Sincerely,
