Easy Eggs

These beautiful eggs are easy peasy to make and oh so pretty hung in your windows for Easter.
We make them every year... Here are our eggs from last year.
To make some eggs of your own...
Gather together a small pile of crayons that you don't mind sacrificing to a beautiful cause!
Using a pencil sharpener, sharpen the crayons so that the wax peelings are left in a pile.
Sprinkle the wax peelings in between two pieces of wax paper.
Cover the wax paper with a hand towel, and using your iron on a low heat setting, press and hold the iron on top of the hand towel for a few seconds moving it frequently to ensure all of the wax has melted.

Remove the wax paper from underneath the hand towel and set it aside to cool. Once cool to the touch, cut the egg shapes out of the wax paper. 
Then you can hang them in your windows to create beautiful little Easter eggs that glow with the sunlight!
