I always have a hard time finding easy (and inexpensive) Valentine's Day gifts that aren't candy. That's why I decided to make heart crayons with cute tags that my daughter can give to her friends this year for Valentine's Day.
I broke up some pink, white, red, and purple crayons (be careful using purple because they can look really dark when melted). I put the pieces in heart-shaped silicone baking cups and melted them in the oven at 225 degrees for about 8-10 minutes, checking them often.
I let them cool, popped them out, and here's how they turned out.
Then I placed them in cello bags, tied them with pink bows, and attached these "You color my world!" Valentine's Day tags created by Michelle from Printabelle.
If you're looking for a cute, quick, cheap Valentine's Day gift, I recommend you try these!
Melissa from The Joys of Home Educating made these fantastic crayon hearts to give to her kids' friends for Valentine's Day. I think this is a terrific idea and my silicone heart molds are on their way right now from Amazon so I can make some for my daughter and her friends.
The best part is they are simple to do. Put your broken crayon pieces in silcone cupcake trays and place in the oven at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes. That's it!
And if you want specific crayon colors, you can buy crayons in single color boxes here at Amazon.
