I have so many old crayons in our house. I started collecting them into a zip-lock bag to intentionally use for crayon drip crafts throughout this year. This pumpkin is the first of them we are going to try. So grab you pumpkins and your crayons and let’s get started on this fun Crayon Drip Pumpkin Craft!
Crayon Drip Pumpkin Craft
- any sized pumpkin (the medium sized ones work well for this)
- Tacky Glue
- Crayons (remove all labels before beginning)
- Hair dryer
- Trash bag to do the project on
- Begin by spreading out a trash bag over your work space. This will protect your table from any melting crayon gone rogue!
- Be sure your crayons are about half size. Break them if needed.
- Glue your crayons around the stem like rays of sun shining out from the stem.
- Using a hair dryer apply heat to the crayons in a downward direction. It takes about 30 seconds to a minute for each crayon to melt and drip. Experiment with more or less drip making some longer or shorter, wider or more narrow.
- Try using sparkle crayons
- Try painting the pumpkin first. For instance you could paint the whole pumpkin black, then after it drys drip crayons down it for a cool nighttime/darkness/Halloween feel. Or paint it white and then use orange and yellow to create a candy corn looking pumpkin.
