Multicolored leaf crayons make charming gifts when attached to homemade cards with glue dots. The crayons also look inviting sitting in a bowl, waiting to color an autumnal scene.
* To speed up the cooling time, place the mold in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
Collect crayons in fall colors (red, orange, yellow, and green). Peel and break the crayons into small pieces.
Fill the leaf-shaped cavities of a candy or cooking mold (silicone is best) with the crayon pieces.
Place the mold on a foil-covered baking sheet, and melt the crayons in a 180˚ oven for about 15 minutes. Remove the mold from the oven, and let the crayons cool before popping them out.*
