Melted Crayon Pumpkin Craft

By October 17, 2016Parkland Players

This is a super cool twist on the regular pumpkin crafts for October and Halloween, and it is super pretty!


  • white pumpkin (even better if it is fake so you can keep the craft for later years)
  • crayons
  • glue
  • blow dryer


  1. peel the paper from your crayons and cut or break them in half.
  2. Place them around the stem of the pumpkin in a circle. If they sit in the ridges this is great. Glue them in place.
  3. Heat up the blow dryer and apply the hot air to the crayons.
  4. Let the wax melt down the sides until the crayon is fully melted.
  5. Put the other halves of your crayons on as well if you would like to melt more.
  6. Use the blow dryer in different angles to let the wax go in different directions.
  7. CAUTIONARY NOTE: be sure to protect the surface you are working on as this will get messy!
  8. Let the kids participate and discuss what happened to the crayons.
