Melted Crayon Pumpkins Will Be Your New Favorite Fall DIY

Fall is in full swing, so it's the perfect time to take advantage of pumpkin decorating! There are tons of DIY crafts out there that utilize pumpkins, but we're all about the melted crayon pumpkin craft right now. 

While the final product might seem a bit daunting, it's actually easy to make and the end result is really fun. It's the perfect Halloween craft for the whole family if you're looking for something to do after you carve those pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns!

Take of the paper wrapping on your crayons. Obviously the idea is to melt the colors down the pumpkin so you can't have the paper in the way. Take note of how much crayon you'll actually need to put on the pumpkin. Unless it's a huge pumpkin, you might need to cut the crayons in half like they do in the above video. 

Get creative with your crayon colors! This really is crayon art, so use as many different colors as you'd like. Just make sure that the crayons can fit on top of the pumpkin. It's also probably best to use a real pumpkin. You don't want to accidentally melt your other plastic decor while you're in the process of this craft.

Once you have your colors, glue them in a circle on the pumpkin. Honestly, this is so easy even for people aren't typically crafty. After that, crank up the blow dryer and aim it at the crayons. 

The video puts the dryer on low and it takes a few minutes for the crayons to melt and splatter down the pumpkin. And that's all there is to it! There's really no messing this up and you can always go back and melt some additional crayons if you don't like the finished product.
