Today we made snowflakes. Well, we made a snowflake. Ivy doesn't really like guided crafts all that much, she wants to do things her way. So she made this one snowflake, then decided she'd rather draw some more decorations instead. She did patiently allow me to take pictures, so I could write up a tutorial
You need wax paper, crayons and a grater. I have an old one I picked up at a garage sale that's just for crafts. You could also use a pencil sharpener. You'll also need an iron.
Grate different color crayons onto a sheet of wax paper
You can make whatever color combinations you like or use just one color
Carefully put the wax paper with crayons bits on a towel. Lay another sheet of wax paper on top
Run the hot iron over it quickly. I had mine on the lowest setting. You might also want to lay another towel on top before you iron it. I didn't and now I have to wipe off the iron
Fold the wax paper into eights and snip designs into it
Open it up
Hang it in the window. It's very pretty if you can hang it in a window that sunlight streams through.
