Melted Crayons Favor: DIY Wedding Ideas

If you are inviting kids to your wedding, you will love these favors made from melted crayons!

My girls and I had a blast making these melted crayons and we loved the final result.

Simply a stack of three or four crayon pucks and tie with a ribbon or some raffia. Add a notepad or coloring book and you have the perfect wedding favor for the kids at your wedding!

Favors Made from Melted Crayons Tutorial

You will need:

  • crayons in a variety of colors
  • mini-muffin pan (Don’t plan on using this again for anything edible. I got mine at a second-hand store for next to nothing.)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Remove paper from crayons and break them into into smallish pieces. Place inside muffin pan. Have fun coming up with interesting colour combos.

Place tin in oven until crayons melt. (About 15 mins.)

Remove tray from oven. Let cool for a few minutes, then pop into the freezer until they harden.

Place muffin tin on counter, turn it over and pop out the pucks. They should fall out easily.  Aren’t they gorgeous little works of art?

If you don’t want to give the melted crayons as favors, why not leave them out at the kids’ activity table at your wedding?

    this is great to use as they do at some restaurants and let the guests draw on sheets of paper draped on tables during the dinner or reception and you or the guests then can save the paper drawings or wedding wishes that guests have hand drawn!

    At my school there are many "left over" pieces of crayon that no teacher wants children to work with. When school starts I will collect these pieces and make them in a work of art that childeren can work with. I am sure they will love it.
    One question: can I melt them also in paper baking cups?

    I've used paper cake cases and it worked well - and means you don't need an old muffin tin - you can use your good one! Gives them crinkle edges.

    This is a fantastic idea for holidays, DIY gifts, etc! Thank you for sharing it! Just one question: I've made these twice now, with two different brands of crayons (cheap generic and more expensive branded - to see if there was a difference based on the quality of the crayon - there isn't) and both times the tutorial worked perfectly except I ended up with a thin layer of clear wax on the bottom (it rose to the top while baking) of the crayon. The wax and the color of the crayons separate when melted and the wax is less dense so it creates this thin layer of clear wax on the bottom of the crayon when it re-solidifies. Your tutorial doesn't mention this at all so I assume it doesn't happen to you: what am I doing wrong to get this result? How can I make sure it doesn't happen? Or if it does, how can I re-combine the color and wax so It's fixed before it sets? Thank you in advance for your response and help!

    Hi DG.. Hmm, not sure what happened. We have made these twice and this did not happen to us. We used a variety of brands of crayons.
