How To Make A Melted Crayon Flower Pot Sun Catcher – Craft
This is so much fun and adorable. My daughter had so much fun designing a flower pot and watching the flowers spring to life when I ironed her craft. I think it’s a great craft for spring, summer, and Mother’s Day.
Does the picture hurt your eyes? Sorry. The sun was glaring in, but I thought it was a great time to snap a picture of the sun catcher. 🙂 It really does make me smile. It’s bright and cheerful.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your flower pot sun catcher:
- 2 sheets of wax paper that are about 9″ x 9″
- 2 paper plates
- old crayons
- cheese grater
- green and orange construction paper
- Cut the middle circle out of the paper plates
- With your orange paper, cut a little flower pot
- Using green paper, cut little stems and leaves
- Arrange them on one of the sheets of wax paper
- You can place a paper plate down as a guide to stay between the sides of the circle
- Use your grater to shave some colors off of the crayons above the stems – It only takes a little bit
- Place the other piece of wax paper over the design
- Place a towel under the design and iron over the top piece of wax paper
- The wax paper should be sealed by the wax, but if your pieces of paper are shifting around use a little glue or tape to secure them in place
- Place a plate under the design and a piece of yarn at the top
- Place another plate over the design and glue to seal them together
- You are done, my friend. Hang and enjoy!
