How To Make Stained Glass Shapes Out of Old Crayons
What you need:
1. Old/broken crayons, paperless
2. Cheese Grater
3. Wax Paper
4. Old Towel
5. An Iron
CRAYONS!!!!- you see how they're all old and used up and/or broken? THIS is the perfect type of crayon for this project. (I have a hard time getting rid of them. I know- serious hoarder potential, but I just always feel like this could be upcycled!)
You 're going to want a cheese grater that you don't mind being ruined. Personally, I have one I just use specifically for shredding up crayons, and don't use for food. I prefer small grates, rather than large ones. It just works better.
When you have spread all the lovely colors across your one side of the wax paper, and you are ready to iron, carefully fold the other half of the wax paper over onto the top of the crayon-strewn surface (you should now have crayon shavings BETWEEN TWO PIECES OF WAX PAPER- this is important, or you'll destroy your iron.) Place the old dish towel on top of your ironing board, and the iron-ready wax paper on top of the old towel.
****When you are ironing, use the HIGHEST SETTING on your iron that DOES NOT USE STEAM. (steam won't hurt it, but it makes a mess!)*****
Try it! You'll have a blast!
