DIY Melted Crayon Pumpkin Decorating. I think kids would love to do these for Halloween. Don’t forget to watch the video below.
Tools you will need:
- Heat tool
- Hot glue gun
- Faux pumpkin
- Hot-glue sticks
Prepare Your Crayons
First things first: get organized! Plugin your hot glue gun and while you wait, arrange your crayons in a gradient, from blue to green to yellow to orange, etc.
Then, peel the paper wrapper off of each crayon. Using a white faux pumpkin for this Halloween craft project allows the colors of the crayons to pop, but you can use any faux pumpkin you like.
To make the crayons fit on top of the pumpkin, they need to be broken into small pieces.
We snapped the crayons with our hands, but if you want the pieces to be the same size, try cutting them in half with a knife instead.
When the crayon pieces are ready, hot glue each crayon around the top of the pumpkin in the color gradient. Add a dot of hot glue, then wait about 30 seconds or blow on it to let it cool a bit.
If you put the crayon directly onto the glue when it is still really hot, the crayon will slide off or melt. When the glue is cooler (but still tacky), stick the crayon on.
For a full gradient of color, keep the crayons in a tight circle when gluing them to the top.
Editor’s Tip: When making your melted crayon art pumpkin, be sure to place parchment paper to protect your surface.
