Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! Laura here from Laura's Crafts & More...This week the DT is making projects with Sparkle & Shine! I used a glass ornament and filled the inside with melted crayons! I saw this on TV the other day and couldn't wait to try it! I have done the glitter & acrylic paint, but never melted crayons! It was really simple & came out so pretty! For this one I used red, green & white crayons....and for my stamp I used "Merry Christmas" from Wintery Puns :)

To make these, you need to take the paper off the crayons and break into small pieces (I used my scissors) place in the ornament & using your heat gun (or blow dryer) heat the crayons and as they melt twirl the ornament to get a good coverage. **Ornaments will obviously be HOT...USE GLOVES!!!** 

I found that colors that are too close together (like bright pink & purple) didn't "swirl" very well....but go ahead & try these with your favorite colors! They are fun & turn out gorgeous! 

The DT is going on Christmas break next week, so I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!!
