Melting candle wax for craft projects is a simple process when you use a double-boiler (a small pot within a larger pot of boiling water). A double-boiler melts the wax slowly and prevents burning or scorching. You can melt store-bought wax chips or shavings or even scraps of wax left over from past projects and candle stumps.
Crayons are a necessary craft supply in many children's lives, but crayons tend to break easily. The broken pieces are quickly tossed aside by the children in favor of attractive new crayons that aren't "defective." Rather than letting ignored, unloved crayons wind up ground into the carpeting, keeping company with the dust bunnies in your home, use shavings from these bits and broken pieces of colored wax to make candles.
