If you’re a craft addict or have kids, you no doubt need a few ways to recycle crayons to clear out all of those broken and smashed crayons you have stashed and stored in various places. I know that I have tons of boxes filled with broken crayons and I’ve recently started to look into ways I can create something new out of the bits and pieces I have an abundance of. I hope you like these ways to recycle crayons and use them to make something pretty!
1. Make New Ones!
Of all of the ways to recycle crayons, melting them down to make new ones is probably the most common. You can choose to melt all of one color together, various shades of the same color or even several different colors, depending on what you’d like! Make them in lined muffin tins or shaped candy molds. Just pop them in the oven on 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes, then take them out and let them cool! Good as new...no, better!
