Thanks to Jess from Everyday Party Magazine for sharing her St. Patrick’s Day Crayons while I’m on maternity leave enjoying my sweet baby girl. I’ll be back soon with more party ideas, DIY’s, crafts, recipes, and more!
Hi everyone! It’s Jess from Everyday Party Magazine. I’m so excited to be here while Laura spends time with her new sweet babe!
As a little girl, I could spend hours coloring and drawing. There wasn’t anything much better than a brand new box of crayons…except when I got to take the old crayons and make new ones!
I stumbled on these giant 4 leaf clover silicone muffin pans at Michaels recently and I decided I would take my boys’ old crayons and make a rainbow of clover crayons for my niece.
St. Patrick’s Day Crayons Tutorial
- About 50 broken crayons
- Four leaf clover silicone baking pan
To make 6 giant crayons, I needed about 50 old broken crayons.
Step 1. I soaked the crayons that still had wrappers on them in a bowl of water. Most of the wrappers fell off after a few minutes in the water.
Step 2. Next, I broke the crayons and sorted them into color piles. This is totally optional, I just wanted each crayon to be a similar color.
Step 3. I added the crayon pieces to the muffin pan, and put it in the oven while it pre-heated to 350 degrees. It took about 10-15 for the crayons to fully melt.
Once the crayons had fully melted I pulled them out and let them cool. (You can put them in the fridge for a few minutes if you want to speed up the process some).
Step 4. Finally, I packaged them up with a cute little tag for my niece.
How great would these be for St. Paddy’s Day class treats too? And bonus, you get rid of old nasty crayons!!
