I'm starting a series of crafts that are possible for the Knot Sew Craftiest among us to do successfully. I don't even want to use the word "tutorial," because that sounds too grand and difficult. These are just fun or cool things that I've tried and not completely messed up. Believe me, if I can do it, you can too!
Our first KSC craft is: Melty Crayons!
If you are a parent of small children, it is a safe bet to assume that you have at least one pile of broken crayons lying around.
Annoying and fairly useless, right? Useless, that is, until you reconstitute them into muffin-shaped mega-crayons! Take a muffin tin, use muffin tin liners, peel and break up crayons, put assorted crayons into the liners, and heat them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 250 degrees, until they melt together in multicolored pools. Let them cool completely, and let the coloring begin!
The rating system for these crafts will be a measure of how easy the crafts were for me, an admittedly Knot Sew Crafty person, not what a normally crafty person would think. This Melty Crayon extravaganza gets a One Button rating, which means that my kids could easily do it themselves, except that I won't let them touch the oven yet.
Fun, easy, and not nearly as smelly as I thought!
