Melted Wax crayon pictures.

IMG_0373.JPGIMG_0380.JPGIMG_0376.JPGThis project is a really simple, effective and affordable project to do. It is easy and you only need a few basic materials: Tracing Paper, baking paper, old tea towel, grater or peeler, an iron and some old wax broken crayons. It really was simple and they looked amazing the photos don’t do them justice.

Time: Approx 30 minutes.

You will need:

  • Newspaper.

  • An iron.

To make:
