How to Make Heart Mold Crayon Valentines
Step 1: You can find these silicone heart molds at a variety of places: any craft shop, the dollar tree, etc. If it’s a large size, you’ll need to cut it to fit into your microwave. Make sure to place it on a microwave-safe plate.
Step 2: Peel the crayons and set them aside. PRO TIP: They are SO much easier to peel if you soak them in water first!
Step 3: Break them into pieces. Fourths seem to be the best size to fill the mold!
Step 4: Fill the mold with the crayons. Fill them all the way to the top and use any desired color combinations.
Step 5: Microwave for about 5 minutes. You want most of the crayons to be melted into liquid but if you have a few crayons that are still chunky, that’s ok. Your time may vary depending on the size of the mold and age of the crayons.
Step 6: Let them sit until they are cooled and hardened. PRO TIP: Placing them in the freezer for about 20 minutes will speed things up!
Step 7: Break them out of the mold and attach them to your valentines with a glue dot, or you can put them in a cute baggie and tie the card to the bag.
And there you have it: the perfect gift for all your little Valentines! Check it out in action here:
