When I was recently invited to do a Halloween segment for Sarasota’s Suncoast View, I knew just want I wanted to make. There are about a million no-carve pumpkin ideas that I’ve been dying to try and this melted crayon pumpkin was at the top of my list. I’ve seen it floating around on Pinterest for several years but never got around to making it myself. In fact, I wasn’t even sure how to melt crayons on a pumpkin but I thought it would be fun to give it a try.
It was even more fun than I thought it would be to make this pumpkin craft. Despite the mess, I may just make a few more this week since I’m already planning to do five days of pumpkins! Want to make your own? Here’s what you’ll need:
A hair dryer
Melted Crayon Pumpkin
You’ll want to start by peeling the wrappers off the crayons, then breaking them in half. Glue them to the top of the pumpkin with tacky glue.
Let the glue dry for at least 45 minutes. It might be better to wait even longer but I was excited to get started. After 45 minutes, I couldn’t wait any longer!
Before you start the melting phase, you should know that this is going to get messy! REALLY messy (but that’s what makes it fun)! You’ll want to put something under the pumpkin to catch all the crayon splatters. I use the cheap $1 plastic tablecloths that I find at the dollar stores for jobs like this.
Get out the hair dryer and melt away! Check out
the mess the action for yourself!
I love the way my melted crayon pumpkin turned out and it makes the perfect Halloween decor!
Are you brave enough to get this messy?
