Plain glass bowls are perfectly fine for storing food in the fridge. But if you want to bring a little bit of fun to the table, try adding some crayon flair.
Glue the crayons to the outside of a glass bowl, and you have yourself a brand new centerpiece. This is great for holding candy, nuts, or other kid-friendly snacks. They'll love to have their own snack bowl!

Start with wax paper that's been folded in half. Deposit shaved crayon pieces evenly on the paper. A pencil sharpener works perfect for creating the crayon shavings. Next, fold the clean half of the wax paper over the shavings, and iron lightly on medium heat.

What You Need
You'll need some Dixie cups, candle wax, Popsicle sticks, crayons, candle wicks, small glass votives, and a plate stand for propping the votive at an angle. You could also find something else to prop up the votive, such as a book.
Be sure to peel the paper label off the crayon. Break into pieces and microwave with the candle wax in a Dixie cup until melted. Use a Popsicle stick to stir the mixture. Pour the liquid wax into a votive, and make sure it's propped at an angle. In order to get the color block look, you'll need one color to cool and set before you start on the next color.
Ombre has gained popularity recently because its gradual blending of colors looks natural, and there are no harsh lines separating the different hues. Here's a great way to incorporate the ombre look into a letter monogram. Read the full tutorial here.
Pick A Wooden Letter
Then pick your crayon colors. You could try transitioning from yellow, to green, and then finally blue.
You'll need to measure your crayon on the wood letter. Use a razor knife to remove the extra length off the crayon where it extends beyond the edge of the letter. Next, start hot gluing the crayons to the wood.
When you're finished, glue a ribbon to the back of the letter. Fashion it into a bow and hang it up on the wall or a bedroom door. This is so cool! Your kids might be tempted to make off with a crayon, so tell them "hands off!"
