  • You will need:
    A mason jar (or any container)
    Crayons
    Oil (preferably extra virgin olive oil, or coconut oil)
    A wick
    Saucepan
    Glass dish or bowl
    Optional:
    Flavourings* (such as vanilla or cinnamon)
    Food colourings (not needed if using coloured crayons)
    *do not use if using coconut oil!

  • Take your crayons and choose which colours you would like. You can mix colours or have layers of different ones!

  • Peel the paper off them so you have a stick of crayon.

  • Then, put the saucepan on the hob, with a small amount of water in. Heat it up and wait until it is bubbling slightly.
    Meanwhile, take 3tsps of oil and put into the glass dish. Take your first colour, and break it in half (if you have more than one stick for each colour, like me, put all the sticks in at once).
    Then put in the pan and mix with a plastic spoon.
    When it is all melted and has formed a smooth liquid, take out of the pan and pour into the mason jar.
    Then wait until it is solid before starting the next colour!

  • Carry on doing this until you are 4 colours away from the top (if you aren't using flavours then carry on until you finish.
Do not worry if it dribbles down the inside, because they aren't noticeable once it's finished!

  • Take the flavourings and split them into three or four piles. Do the same as before, only adding the flavours to them as well.

  • To make them melt quicker you can always mix it up before putting it on the heat!

  • Take the wick, it is best to put a paper clip or some sort of stand at the bottom to keep it in place, then once you have done the last colour, carefully put it in the the wax while it is still hot.
