Frames can be made from anything. Resourcefulness and creativity is the key. This time I'm going to make one from melted crayons. If you wish to try this just be careful with the flames.


  • old crayons
  • picture
  • candle and matches/lighter
  • scissors
  • wax paper
  • glitters (optional)
  • marker
  • stick
  • old spoon


  1. Draw a desired pattern or shape for the photo frame on the waxed paper.

  3. Cut crayons into small pieces.
  4. Put one piece of crayon into the spoon and place above a lit candle.
  5. Let crayon melt.
  6. Pour it over the pattern. Don't worry if it doesn't follow the shape. You can just cut it out later.
  7. Pour more crayon melts for a thicker layer. Then sprinkle with glitters while the layers have not yet fully set.

  9. Cut the frame out based on your pattern. Flip the paper and you'll still see the drawing at the back.
  10. Melt other colors for creating the design.
  11. Stick photo on from the back.
  12. Cover back portion with melted crayon (the same color as the base frame).
  13. When everything is set, simply prick the back with a stick in a slant position. This will serve as the frame stand. Or try to find anything that looks better than a stick.

  15. Now you can display your crayon frame.
