These Valentine’s Day Heart Crayons are super easy to make. We have a ton of broken crayons laying around the house. This is the perfect use for them AND the more broken the better!!!

This is also a great project to work on with the kids – let me tell you, taking the paper off the crayons, is probably the most time-consuming part.

PRO TIP: Use a super sharp knife to slice the paper off. Just be careful!

What are some other ways to get the paper off of the crayon? Some readers mentioned some other great ways to get the paper off easily.

One said to soak them in water for a few minutes and they peel right off. Like I said, I used a super sharp knife to slit a line done the crayon and it came right off (obviously, be very careful – don’t want any knife accidents)

How to make DIY Heart-Shaped Crayons

Materials Needed:

Instructions:

STEP ONE: Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.

STEP TWO: Peel the paper off of all of the crayons and break into small pieces.broken crayons in bowl

STEP THREE: Place the crayon pieces into each of the heart molds. Make sure to mix up the colors and add some light colors with some dark colors. I like to put a few small pieces of white into each mold because it helps define and break the other colors up nicely! Don’t worry though, it is pretty hard to mess up! broken crayons in silicone heart mold

STEP FOUR: Place the mold onto a cookie sheet and place in the oven for about 12 minutes

PRO TIP : All ovens cook differently. You will want to watch for the crayons to melt completely, but take them out before all of the colors mush together too much!!

STEP FIVE: Take them out of the oven and let them cool completely. The crayons should pop right out of the molds!

    1. Hmmmmm that’s strange, I really didn’t do anything but remove the paper and melt them. Not sure why yours are not shiny. I used Crayola brand if that helps? The brand could matter.
