Color Crayons on My Eggs!

The Clumsy Crafter shared a craft idea for melting crayon shavings onto your eggs. Looked like dyed fabric to me! I wanted to try it. Thanks Clumsy Crafter for sharing it!


First, let me say, I made a few mistakes, but they are very pretty anyway.  

Hop over and read how to make Melted Crayon Easter Eggs from the Clumsy Crafter.  

When I went to the drawer to get the grater, I saw the fruit zester.  That was my first mistake -- the chips were too fine and I piled too many on top of the eggs.

My second mistake was I cooled off the temperature in the room, because I was hot, (remember I am a Grandmama!) Well... it cooled the eggs too fast. 

My third mistake --- I touched them and then I used a toothpick and a paper towel to spread the wax on the eggs and rub off the clumps.

Anyway, here are my colorful eggs --- Of course I took tons of photos.
































































I really enjoyed making the eggs and taking all the photos of all the colors! 

This was definitely a Minutes for Me activity!

Hop over to see how to make them at the Clumsy Crafter.

I hope you enjoyed it too!

Happy Easter!
