We decided to make an old favorite – melted crayon pumpkins!  I love these because they remind me of stained glass.  It is especially pretty when you have several kids who use different colors.  The pumpkins all turn out differently and they look so pretty hanging in a well-lit window.

First, we placed wax paper on the table.

We used a pencil sharpener to grate crayon shavings onto the wax paper.

We used several of our favorite fall colors.

We arranged a clump of green crayon shavings at the spot where the stem should be.

 We placed a second sheet of wax  paper on top of our crayon shavings.

We placed a dish towel on top of the second layer of wax paper.

We used an iron to press and melt the crayon shavings.

After lifting the iron, we allowed the melted crayons to cool.  We used a sharpie marker to draw the outline of a pumpkin.

 Finally, we cut out our melted crayon pumpkin.

 We displayed our melted crayon pumpkin in the window.  The colors are pretty and it looks like stained glass artwork.
