Most kids have mountains of old and broken crayons lying around. Instead of tossing them in the trash, why not give them new life as Christmas décor? Turn colorful crayon shavings into a beautiful ornament for your Christmas tree.

Peel the paper wrapper off of the crayons and break the crayons into small pieces (if they aren’t already broken).
Drop a few pieces of broken crayon into the bottom of the ornament.
Put the oven mitt on one hand and hold the ornament with the mitt-covered hand. Turn your hair dryer on high to melt the wax inside the glass.
Roll the melted crayons around inside the ornament until the glass is covered with color. Once you are happy with the way the ornament looks, turn it upside down to dump out the crayon pieces, then place the cap on the ornament.
Cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around the top of the ornament, then hang your new melted-crayon ornament on the Christmas tree.
