The first step is to peel the paper off your crayons. You can either use an x-acto knife or soak the crayons in water for easy peeling.
Next, fill a plastic cup with wax and microwave for 1 minute. Give it a stir and microwave again in 30-second intervals until wax is completely melted. Pour a thin layer of wax into the bottom of each votive and place the candle wick in the center. Let harden.
Using one crayon per color, fill a paper cup with wax and top with a broken up crayon. Microwave for 2 minutes and then in 30-second intervals until completely liquified. Let cool for 30 seconds or so and pour colored wax into the glass. Let the first layer dry for 20-30 minutes.
Repeat this process and continue to pour layers of colored wax into each glass, making sure to let them dry between each layer.
And that’s it! Crayon candles are ready.
