Here are some pumpkin crayons that I made for our gift bags for this years school Halloween party. Fun, fun! I love making crayons!
It all started several months back with some crayons I found at the thrift.
They were Halloween treats that someone had bought marked down and then never used. Score! I could have just used them like this because the bag had never been opened, but why stop there.
Next I found these at the Dollar Tree.
At first I only got one of the pumpkin one, but after I went back I decided to pick up the an extra one, and two of the skulls. I’m not big on bones for Halloween. Don’t get me wrong, I like scary but I there is something about it. I decided to get them because I thought that they might work for a pirate theme later. Or something.
I picked up an extra because I hate waiting. I’m so impatient! I had originally planned on making crazy crayons, but since these are sort of small and I had all of these that were the same color I thought why not make a set of one of each!
This time I decided to try and use baby food jars. I decided this was not the best route to go. I still got some wax in the pan. I was also afraid of busting the glass when I was taking it out and putting it in. I went to the thrift to find a bigger pan that I could use, because I tell you this is soooo fun! I just need to find more molds. And more crayons!
Here is the finished product! I picked up these lollypop bags made by Wilton. I used a MS circle punch and orange scrap card stock to make these little tags. I was afraid that a little kiddo would taste them. I know they are none toxic, but yuck!
When you add up everything these little bags only cost about 35 cents a piece! Not bad!
Tomorrow, I will post the rest of the gift bags so stay tuned!
