Five Upcycled Crayon Crafts

crayon monogram from Frugal Life ProjectLooking for Christmas gifts yet? This crayon monogram from Frugal Life Project is especially nice because 1) you get to use broken crayons and 2) you don’t have to peel them!

To make these straight, even cuts (which is at least half the charm of the monogram), score all the way around the crayon with an x-acto knife, break the crayon at the score, and then sand or cut away any sticky-outy bits.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
