Melted Crayon Pumpkin

 This was a great craft for Kimberly while she is in the wheel chair.
And it turned out so cute, I was very please.
Start with a ghost pumpkin.  
crayons (crayola) with the labels pealed off 
a hot glue gun...or a strong quick acting glue
a blow dryer
 Glue the crayons to the top of the pumpkin ( our pumpkin was cold from being outside...we needed to let it warm up for the hot glue to do its job.)
 Do the next step outside.  ( the crayon wax can spatter about)
Set the blow dryer on the hottest setting and have at it. 
 The crayons start melting.  You need to find a good angle for this or you will be spraying crayon all over everything. 
 Keep up the good work....after the crayons have begun melting we turned the blow dryer to a lower setting. 
Kimberly's final product....I just love this.  I believe it will be a new tradition. 
I can imagine how cute this would be with different color combination.
All one color of different shades...l
Rainbow colors around the pumpkin...and anything else we can think of....
We have 2 more ghost pumpkins to try this technique...I look forward to what Grace and Luke decide to do!
