Anyone who owns crayons has at least a few broken bits laying around. Don't toss 'em, melt 'em! It's really fun and easy to turn ugly lumps of wax into beautiful, smooth, swirly heart shaped crayons! They're fun to give as gifts, especially around Valentine's day!
I sorted mine into color-themes: blue and green, pink and red, orange and yellow but you could *yawn!* make solid colors instead or get really wild and just mix colors together randomly. Be sure to take them from the oven gently or the colors will all mix together.
Choose which crayons to use, decide on a color palette.
Use a razor blade to remove the labels.
Break crayons into small chunks.
Put pieces into the mini-heart pan until the bottom is pretty much covered, three or four pieces should be fine.
Set the oven to 250, then put the heart shaped pan on top of a cookie sheet for stability. Remove the pan from the oven when all of the crayons are melted.
Let cool completely, about an hour or overnight then pop out of the pan and enjoy!
