CIY Staff Tips:
- This craft includes the use of a hair dryer. Adult assistance required.
- A pencil sharpener will work if you don’t have a crayon sharpener on hand.
Unwrap 2–6 crayons, then use crayon sharpener to create shavings
Lay a piece of wax paper on a protected surface. Evenly sprinkle the shavings onto the wax paper.
Place a slightly larger piece of wax paper over the shavings and seal the edges with duct tape.
With the help of an adult, use a hairdryer to melt the shavings. Let cool 15 minutes.
Loop string through mason jar lids, then tie to create the ornament hangers.
Use mason jar lid to measure and trace a circle on the wax paper.
Cut out the circles with scissors and trim to fit, if needed.
Carefully press the circles into the open top of mason jar lid.
Hang on your tree or around the house!
