20 Amazing Ways to use CRAYONS in HOME DECOR!

We have a lot of crayons in this house.  And it’s mostly because both of my girls, Elli, and Chloe, came out of the womb LOVING to draw, color, design, etc!  It’s crazy how much they love it!  Well, lately, Connor has been joining the girls and drawing all sorts of Star Wars battle scenes and characters from video games that I’m clueless about and he only knows about from friends at school…..but he’s been getting really into it and adding lots of detail and colors and labeling them, etc.  Anyway, because of all this, the crayons are taking over my life!!!  Ha!

So, I was about ready to melt the crayons down into molds to create bigger multi-colored crayons the other day, when I thought to look around for other ideas to use their broken crayon pieces.  Oh my goodness…..there are some great ways to use up old crayons but I was most amazed by the ideas to use crayons in home decor!  Yes, like ideas that I’d actually use and display around the house.  Some of them would be so cute in the kids’s room too……I can hardly wait to have them help me create some masterpieces.

Anyway, I can’t be the only one……do you have bins and buckets full of old crayons?  How about turning them into something pretty darn amazing!! :)
