I’ve had this pretty project on my diy to-do list for a while, ever since I found a link to this tutorial. The original plan was to take down the froebel stars that have been looking pretty in my window since December. But then I thought these translucent crayon hearts would look even prettier back-lit in one of my light boxes. Hanging them in your window is a great option too though. Just check out the pictures here.
All you need:
Crayons in the colors you like. I used 4 redish colors.
A pencil sharpener or small knife.
Waxed paper (I used white (florist) wrapping paper, but you can use the kitchen kind as well).
A hot iron.
Newspaper or old cloth to prevent the greasy colors to bleed through.
Follow the tutorial, enjoy!
