Taking some basic crayons and using a simple melting technique used for ages, you can take your holiday gourds or pumpkins to a whole new level. We created this video using crayon art showing you how we made our holiday gourd creations. It is a family friendly and easy way of spicing up your tablescape and holiday decor.
- Pumpkin gourds
- Peeled Crayons
- Regular hair dryer
- Parchment Papers
In the video we used metallic fall colored crayons for a more holiday decor style. In the pictures below, we used a random array of colorful crayons. Letting children pick the colors, peel the crayons and hold the dryer with assistance make this a child friendly craft. Caution the wax can get hot so close attention needs to be paid when having children help.
Place crayons on gourd.
Use regular hair dryer on high heat. Start out holding up high until crayons are melting then bring it in lower.
Once you have done one coating, do a second to cover the gourd well.
We hope you enjoy exploring crayon art by making a melted wax gourd as much as we did.Our Personal Accent,
Stephani Williams and Angela
