DIY Fall Halloween Melted Crayon Pumpkin
I love bright and colorful. There is something that is so happy about being reminded of rainbows. Maybe it’s the inner child wanting to find that pot of gold at the end or maybe it’s just that I dig colors.
Halloween and fall decor has long been orange and black. We’ve seen lime greens and purples in the mix but these days Halloween can be just about anything really. Sure the orange and black are always going to be the typical color scheme, but if it’s cool to throw some rainbow in there, why the heck not?
Taking a cue from the pumpkin queen herself, my friend Alexa a.k.a. the Swell Designer, I busted out the Crayola crayons and got after it!
For this project you will need:
- White pumpkin
- Crayola Crayons (Crayola brand works best, others may not melt properly)
- Clear Tacky Glue
- Blow Dryer or Heat Gun
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 with a drop cloth 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 blowdryer all over again.
Now isn’t this little bit of Halloween/fall decor just too much fun?!?
