For this project you will need:

  • White pumpkin
  • Crayons
  • Glue
  • Blow dryer

First you’ll need to find a white pumpkin so that your colors can really pop. Mine is a Funkin faux pumpkin.

Decide your colors to work with. I grabbed a box of, like, 32 crayons and found that they weren’t all super bright and pretty. In the future I’d probably buy a smaller set sure to have the basic colors inside.

Peel the paper from your crayons.

You can use a slice down the paper with a craft knife to help this go much faster.

Glue your crayons to your pumpkin.

 

Get that blow dryer heated and ready…

…and watch those suckers drip!

Be sure to protect your work surface as things get kind of crazy.

Point your blow dryer at random angles at the wax to help it spread instead of running straight down. Allow to cool and set.

In the areas where you need more color add another glued on crayon and hit it with the blow dryer all over again.
