Melted Wax Gourds for the Holidays by My Personal Accent #crayonart #holidaydecor

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.
