Valentine's Day Crayon Shaving Hearts

This is an old school craft that will add some festive Valentine's Day decor to any window in your home!

-Wax Paper
-Crayons (we chose Valentine's Day colors: red, pink, purple, white, gray)
-An iron

Create crayon shavings with a pencil sharpener or with a paring knife (be careful!)

Use a spoon to spread the crayon shavings on top of a piece of waxed paper. Put another piece of waxed paper on top. Place an iron (on the lowest setting) on the top sheet of waxed paper for a few seconds only.
This should melt the crayons and create a large puddle of color for you!

Allow to dry. Trim to heart shapes and attach a colorful ribbon. Hang in a window and enjoy!
