How to Make Melted Glitter Crayons

melted glitter crayons

We honestly don’t know how we ended up with so many crayons, but we have a drawer FULL of them! Maybe you have a bunch kicking around your house too. Why not upcycle them into these gorgeous Melted Glitter Crayons? All you need is some glitter and a small muffin pan. (Tip: If you don’t want wax residue in your muffin pan, you can use paper cupcake liners which will give your crayons cute crinkled edges. We bought our mini-muffin pan at a second hand store and use it exclusively to make crayons.)

Watch our video on how to make them in a 250 °F / 120 °C oven. This is our first non-Rainbow Loom craft video. Let us know how we did in the comments below.

    Wow, I really love these melted glitter crayons! 🙂 It’s a very good idea! Oh, BTW, second comment! ^__^ After I tried to make them they turned out so good! I made one with only one color of crayon and I thought it looked better than the ones that the colors are all mixed together. That’s just my opinion. Thanks for making the melted glitter crayons!

    Well done girls good tutorial. My video froze about about a minute before the end 🙁 ….though I got to see you tipping them out! I liked your crayon glasses!!! Lol ….. I just thought a way you could use yr crayons. You know the scratch pictures? Yep good fun!

  4. Kate says:

    Wow! They look so amazing, I’m thinking about making camouflage style ones. I’m looking forward to making them!

    These look like a lot of fun!!! I have tons of crayons and I’m pretty sure that I can use the extras to make these. My brother will love them too! The paper liners are a really good idea!

    So cute! Such a fun way to recycle crayons. I have WAY too many crayons too, most are now mixed together with other colours of crayon so I will try to make these soon! Speaking of crafts, at the school party that was after school today, me and my four closest friends at my school made a miniature Buddhist shrine out of cardboard, decorated with ribbons, stickers, two pom-poms, masking tape, origami flowers, those short cardboard rolls and coloured pens. It’s so cool! It was really nice of my friends to let me take it home. I came up with the idea too 🙂 Maybe you could do tutorials on how to make miniature models of buildings with similar things 😀 And, there was face paint and guess what I got?? I got a red lightning scar on my forehead!! My two closest friends out of the four also got lightning scars, except one was black and one a pinkish colour. They weren’t too specific about what they wanted, lol 😛 And to our teacher, who is REALLY nice we went up to him and I said ‘Avada Kedavra!’ and he froze, and then one of my friends said ‘you’re meant to die!’ and he said ‘oh yes, I forgot’ and mimes dying, lol ;). He has read the books though.

    Loved the crayon eyes 😉
    Anyways, I just have a question. Not meant to be offensive.
    What are we supposed to do with these after we make them? 😛
    Congrats on the first craft video.
    And congrats to Shortleaf for winning the giveaway.
    That’s all! I would really value and appreciate a response to my question. Thanks.

    You guys should make garbage bag dresses!! I always thought they were super cool but I could never find any good video tutorials. Thanks Loom Love!!

  11. Annabeth Chase says:

    Wow! thats such a cool idea:) do the crayons have to be wax crayons or any sort will do?? You guys are really funny and cute! Loved the video and I’m gonna try this out. Pls get some more awesome craft tutorials out, it was fun watching the video!

    We’ve done this before, only we used molds. We used a black/brown crayon and made it look like a chocolate bar. It was so realistic, my dad took a bite of it!!!!!!! It’s really fun to do in molds. I recommend doing molds instead on muffin tins. ????

  14. Isabella says:

    I’m so sad my crayons were colorful when I put them in and now there black and they haven’t melted yet they have been in my oven a long time but they are not melting I don’t know what I did wrong? ):

    • LoomLove says:

      Sorry to hear that Isabella. Did you set the oven to 250 F? If it was set at 250 Celsius they would turn black.

  15. Isabella says:

    Loom love you should put a section where your fans could share what their craft or rainbow loom creation looked like in the end to inspire color choices for crafts and loom creations! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  16. Josh says:

    These are cool! An idea I thought of is that you could try putting some candle wick through them so you have some little multi-coloured candles 🙂

  17. Krysten says:

    wow. you guys did an excellent job. i think that your tutorials are so awesome. they are easy to understand. you should do scrapbooking. and show us some DIY Halloween decorations. 🙂

  18. Emily A says:

    The crayons look so cute after they’d been melted 🙂 keep up the awesome work. But keep the Rainbow Loom tutorials coming!!

  19. Hadley says:

    Can you do them without glitter? I don’t have glitter but I want to do this with my little brother and sister.

  20. beautifulcheetah says:

    Hey loom love, I have an idea. Can you post to get the shaped tins from, because I only have football jello molds. Would that work?

  21. Holden says:

    This is a great idea to do them with glitter. I’ve done these before with my family, just without the glitter. I should make some for my little sisters.

  22. The Next Step says:

    These are amazing! For some reason I have thousands of crayons lying around in my house and this would be perfect! Thanks Loom Love 🙂

  23. rubytuesday says:

  25. shortleaf says:

    Me and my sister made these, and we love them! I think it’s so cool that you can turn some ugly crayons into some beautiful multi-colored ones!

    You should do a soap-making tutorial.


  26. Sarah Bandzzzzz says:

  28. Alison says:

    I made these and the top turned out great but I have no idea how but the bottom of them changed to a colour which wasn’t a colour that I used. Other than that they were pretty cool!

  29. Nicole Peters says:
