DIY: How to Make Crayon Hearts for Valentine's Day

by Jillian Leslie on

Melissa from The Joys of Home Educating made these fantastic crayon hearts to give to her kids’ friends for Valentine’s Day. I think this is a terrific idea and my silicone heart molds are on their way right now from Amazon so I can make some for my daughter and her friends.

The best part is they are simple to do. Put your broken crayon pieces in silcone cupcake trays and place in the oven at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes. That’s it!

And if you want specific crayon colors, you can buy crayons in single color boxes here at Amazon.

Look how cute Melissa’s heart crayons turned out. If you want to dress yours up like Melissa did, we’ve got cute Valentine’s Day printable bag toppers here free on our site.

To see Melissa’s full tutorial head over to her blog The Joys of Home Educating. Thank you, Melissa, for the great idea!

    Nice idea! My kids have made crayons in muffin pans, but the heart shaped is even better!
