Here’s how you can make this super easy card that’s perfect for Valentine’s day
Materials –
  1. A small candle preferably a votive,
  2. color coordinated crayons,
  3. an A4 cardstock sheet and
  4. Scissors.

To make

3D Melted Crayon Valentine Heart Card

  1. Draw a heart shape with a black marker on an A4 sheet
  2. Melt the tip of the crayon [ be sure to remove the paper packaging before you attempt] and drip onto the sheet.
  3. Heat, Drip, Heat, Drip. Repeat till whole area is covered in dots.
  4. Once completed, cutout the heart and paste onto a card sheet [ alternately you can craft on the cardstock directly]
  5. The crayon dots tends to chip off after a few days. A coat of Modpodge does the trick of keeping them in place.

PS: This craft involves fire. Ideally suitable for kids aged 5 and above [ only if they are used to following instructions. No matter what age, please do not attempt without adult supervision ]

The last two are made by Lil P with intermediate hand holding.  🙂 The Blue is for hubby and red for me.. She pasted it on a card and wrote I Love Dad and I love Mom 🙂  I think I’m going to frame this one.
This project is a perfect for making a card or even as wall art on canvas , and would make a beautiful piece to hang in a child’s room, class room, or any place that could use a beautiful pop of color!

  4. Hi, Nice idea!!
    Tried to do this with my son, 8 years – he loved the melting n dripping.

    But only one thing – the melted crayon was having some burned/charcoal in it – so it added a blackish tint to all colors.
    Is that coz of the candle we used? It was a normal candle (white)
