Valentines Day Crafts: Melted Crayon ‘Hearts’ Art
Valentine’s day crafts for kids are popping up all over the blog world. We have a simple melted crayon ‘hearts’ art. It is an easy, fun and a beautiful Valentine’s day art project for kids. It can be converted into a cute Valentine’s day craft and in turn into a handmade Valentines day gift for friends and family.. This was the day we were finally going to show some love to those broken, abandoned crayon bits that nobody wants to use and made some melting crayons on foam hearts.

- Foam hearts
- Chenille stems
- Hole punch
- Glitter glue
- Wax paper
We set up this simple assembly line for the ease of doing our project. We just went all out and made lots of crayon shavings and wanted to use it all up ! haha !
We grated the crayons to create some crayon shavings. Now this a little bit hard for Big S , so I stepped in and turned to my good ol’ grater for help. Since Valentine’s day is just around the corner, we did heart cutouts from foam sheets for our project.
Sprinkle the crayon shavings onto the foam hearts and to make it stick, cover it with a wax paper and iron. Just press and lift up the iron and pull back the wax paper. You can create a smear if you slide the iron or press it down too long, so be advised.
Use glitter glue to decorate the edges or write on the hearts. Punch out holes, and use chenille stems to make a hanging display of your melted crayon hearts creation.
Now that’s a gorgeous piece of ART !

These are lovely and what a fun process! I have been wanting to try this for a long time now, but been too lazy to grate the crayon bits, easier for me to melt them in muffin tray into chunky crayons 🙂
Thanks ! It was fun indeed. Grating does require some muscles but its so worth it 🙂 .
