What You Need

How To Make It

  1. Use clear jars that are generally laying about the house.
  2. Pickle and jelly jars are excellent for this type of project.
  3. You can buy those boil bags, wicks, and wax at a local craft store.
  4. Gather all your broken crayons and separate them into color schemes.
  5. I used a sharp knife that worked much better.
  6. The hard part of this project was getting the wicks to stand up straight while we poured the wax.

    Here's a trick, tape the wick to a pencil or a chopstick (if you have one) and lay that on top of the jar.

    If the wick is not straight, the candle will not burn well.

  7. After the jars are ready, melt the white wax in a boil bag.
  8. Pour the wax, a little at a time, add the broken crayons to the mix.
  9. Since the wax is hot, the crayons melt, and the effect is very artistic!
  10. Once the jar is full, top it off with a handful of some interesting color. The hot wax caused the colors to "run" into the candles.

Very do you get the candles out of the jars?

I covered the mold with baby oil before pouring the wax, like you would flour a cake pan). After the wax hardened, I squeezed the sides and bottom of the mold until it loosened.
