DIY Candles from Crayons

Have small pieces of wax crayons that your kids can’t use anymore? Don’t throw them and create small colourful candles instead.  These DIY wax candles could be perfect additions to any room in your house :)

Crayon Candles


  • Wax
  • Old crayons
  • Candle Wick
  • Glass cups
  • Paper cups


Crayon Candles

In each paper cup, put wax and one color crayons and heat in the microwave for one minute.

Place the wick in the middle of the glass cup, and then pour your first melted wax.

Wait for the first color wax to become solid enough that it holds the shape that you want. You can also make this project a little easier by having horizontal blocks of colors instead of diagonal ones. But still, you have to wait for the wax to cool and become solid before you pour the next color so they will not mix.

Make sure that the wick stays in the middle. And when you are with the last color, place the glass in an upright position.

It’s that easy!
