Supplies for Your DIY Christmas Ornament

Crayon Ornament Supplies
  1. Crayons – Any crayons will do, but I used some we received from restaurants and grocery stores.
  2. Crayon sharpener – I found this one with different size sharpener holes.  They can also be found at a dollar store.
  3. Hair dryer – Any hair dryer will do as long as it gets warm enough.
  4. Clear plastic ornaments –We want these to be clear so you can see the finished product and plastic so they do not break if dropped.
  5. Funnel –In lieu of a funnel, you can use a piece of rolled construction paper taped together.

Directions to Make a DIY Christmas Ornament

1. First, choose the color of crayons you wish and have your child or yourself sharpen the crayons to make colored shavings.

2. Using a funnel or construction paper, pour the crayon shavings into the ornament.  My toddler really liked watching the shavings fall into the ornament.

4. While rotating the ornament, have you or your child use the hair dryer to melt the crayon shavings inside of the ornament.  I would not let your child hold the ornament while the hair dryer is on it as the ornament gets very hot.  It may even be a good idea to use and oven mitt or glove.

5. Write your child’s name and date on the ornament for a keepsake.
