DIY heart-shaped crayon necklace


We are still on our Crayola Crayon kick over here, so we made sweet Valentine’s for the little ladies in our lives. Jessica’s daughter made crayon hearts for her friends, and Jessica found the drill so they could wear them around their necks. A girl always needs to accessorize, and she needs a colorful writing utensil close by, right?

Here’s how you can do it too:

  • Follow these directions to make the crayon hearts. Super easy, we promise.
  • Use a small drill bit to drill two holes, one on each side of the heart.
  • Insert red and white twine through the holes and tie a bow at the top of the necklace.
  • For the packaging, we used our amazing electronic cutting tool, the Silhouette, to cut rectangles with an I {space} U with colorful Astrobrights Papers to spell out “I {heart} U.”
  • Of course, everything is cuter with Washi Tape, so with just a small piece of it, the package is sealed and ready for delivery.

DIY Pencil + Crayon Cupid Arrow


Valentine’s Day is still a month away, but we’re in the mood for love. And we’ve been struck by the cutest bow and arrow ever!

If you’re opting for a non-candy Valentine, or want to play cupid on February 14, this is the arrow for you.


Materials Needed

How To Create Our Crayola Love Struck Arrow:

  1. Fill the silicone tray with old or new bits of crayons to the top.
  2. Bake at 250 degrees for 13 minutes. Once the tray cools a bit, place in freezer for 5-10 minutes. The hearts should pop right out.
  3. Use a drill to drill a small hole in the top-middle part of the heart, so the tip of the pencil fits into the heart similar to a pencil sharpener. Don’t drill the hole too big, but if it’s not fitting just right, add some glue to the tip of the pencil and insert.
  4. For the end of the arrow, cut felt and either glue the two pieces together or if you use sticker felt like us, just press the two pieces together, sandwiching the pencil.

If you want to package for classmates or a friend, place the arrow in a thin cellophane bag and seal with washi tape.
