CIY Staff Tips:

  • This project uses a hair dryer. Adult assistance is required.



Unwrap the crayons you want to use to make your raindrops. Experiment with shades of pink and red!


Sharpen crayons into small shavings using a pencil sharpener.


Protect your surface. Then, sprinkle the shavings onto a piece of wax paper. Be sure to blend the coloured shavings!


Place another piece of wax paper over the top of your crayon shavings. Tape down the edges. Make sure to remove as many air bubbles as possible.


With adult supervision, use a hair dryer to melt the shavings until they form a colourful melted surface.


Wait for your melted crayons to cool before cutting heart shapes into your melted crayon and wax paper. Accent with Glitter Glue.


Use a hole punch to create the hole for the string.
