crayon hearts.

This is a project I have done with my daughter P every year for Valentine’s since she was about 3. It’s so much fun to watch the wax melt {her absolute favorite part} and it makes me feel better about using up all those odds-and-ends crayons. We save them up all year just for this project. The hearts look so beautiful when they’re done.

And don’t feel restricted to putting them up on windows, I hang mine from the ceiling with string and they look amazing that way. Follow the instructions here, and craft away.
