“You Color My World” Valentines {Part One}

20130203-144451.jpg
We have been hard at work for over a week making part of the kids’ valentines gifts for their family and friends. We were given a large bucket of old and broken crayons that had been separated by color which sparked the idea of gifting, made with love, heart shaped crayons.

How to:
-Gather and collect as many old or broken crayons as possible. Don’t be afraid to ask your family and friends if they have some laying around they would like to get rid of.
-Sort by color
-Remove all paper from crayons
-Break crayons into smaller pieces
We used the baby food jar and boiling water method to melt our crayons, like Fun on a Dime did.
When we FINALLY finished we grouped them together and made a tower of love tied together with yarn.
