House of Wax

I’ve shared the super-easy recipe for recycled crayons here before, but this week we decided to give it a Halloween spin, attempting spooky color combinations like black and orange or purple and red.

Of course, we had to assign names to the new cray-ations: from top left, I give you Jack-o-lantern, Dracula’s Blood, Dead-end Road, Midnight Blue, Mermaid Sea, Candy Corn, Fire in the Sky, Ghostly Greys, and Swamp Thing. 😉

Tip: Because these are so fat, they’re great for gravestone rubbings. There are also often surprise color combos inside once you give these a crack — so get whackin’!
