The holidays are such a fun time to create with children. Crafting with kids is a fantastic way to bond and connect. Here is a craft that serves as a fabulous decoration once completed, either on the tree or in a window. I bet this wax paper and crayon tree would be great tied to a gift too.
- Crayons (Green, Brown and Yellow)
- Wax Paper
- Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
- Red Buttons
- Hole Punch Ribbon for Hanger
Remove the paper from the crayons and grate them.
Spread the grated wax to create the shape similar to a Christmas Tree.
Put another layer of wax paper on top and melt the crayon shavings with an iron. Let it cool.
Cut it into the shape of a tree.
Add buttons for ornaments with the glue. I used Radical Red buttons from my collection with Buttons Galore.
Punch a hole and add a ribbon to hand it up. LOVELY!!!
Happy Kid Crafting,
