The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 213 - Making giant crayons from broken ones.

I saw this tutorial a while ago for making dinosaur crayons over on craftster. I Thought they looked pretty cool. Of course I didn't have a dinosaur mould, but the idea was to melt the broken crayons in the oven into the dinosaur shape. I wasn't sure if it would work but I had a gingerbread man cutter so I thought why not give it a try.

Hmmm. Didn't quite work.....

 So I scraped it off and poured it into this loveheart cupcake pan. No escaping now!

And here's what came out.
 Miss Juliet gave it a trial run.
 And here's what she drew. All's well that ends well.
