Valentine Craft – Crayon Heart Sun Catchers

Crayon HeartsAre you looking for a fun and easy Valentine craft to do at home with your little one? Crayon melt sun catchers are a great choice! They make pretty decorations and are fun to give out as Valentine cards.

What You’ll Need

  • Waxed paper
  • Crayons
  • Crayon sharpener
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Paper bag or craft paper
  • Thread (optional)

Basic Directions

  1. Take a sheet of wax paper and fold it in half.
  2. Unfold the sheet.
  3. Place crayon shavings from the sharpener evenly on one side of the wax paper (try not to pile them on too thickly).
  4. Fold the clean half of the wax paper back over the shavings.
  5. Place your craft paper or paper bag on your ironing board to protect the board from wax and then place the wax paper shaving sandwich on top of it.
  6. Place another paper bag or craft paper on top to protect your iron.
  7. Iron on medium eat until crayon shavings have melted completely (check every few passes).
  8. Let it cool.
  9. Trace a heart shape on the melted shavings sandwich and cut it out.
  10. String a thread through the heart for hanging.

You can use any color shavings you’d like. And, use different shapes for different holidays. When you hang these in front of a window, they make pretty, colorful displays.
