a little thanks...

a generous friend of mine gifted this super-awesome cookie mold to us...

it's cast iron, and probably weighs as much as my 3 year old.

and it's awesome!

as a thank you to her, we made some crayons with it...

gathered some old crayons, peeled off the paper...and broke them into pieces (i used my hands... leo?... he liked the hammer method...)

searched for the letters we needed...

and sorted the crayons by color...

set the oven at about 250 degrees, and let all the wax melt (about 10 minutes), and then turned the oven off and let it cool before moving them.

i was hoping they'd just pop out, but they didn't.  so we turned the mold over and used a heat gun to warm them up enough to wiggle them out with an exacto knife.

and that was that...


  1. what an awesome idea! we get so many sets of crayons every time we go out to eat, have a birthday etc. i love having a project to use the broken extra crayons with to give them another life! now, where do I find a cast iron cookie mold like that?!
