Hello Deeper Than FashioniSTARS!
I know, I know, I've been m.i.a for quite some time & it is completely my fault for neglecting this blog. However, I decided to make it up to you guys, by posting a super easy DIY tutorial on how to make Rainbow Crayon Hearts :)
Some of you may have seen these tutorials online before, but I decided to do a "Malaysian"-fied version of it which makes it easier for you to get the stuff to make this.
I made these on a budget of RM10.
I kid you not, RM10!
I got crayons for Rm5 & the heart shaped silicone mold for Rm5.
Both for Daiso, Sunway Pyramid.
What you need to do is basically chop up the crayons into small bits.
I colour separated them so I could coordinate when I placed them in the mold.
I put one chunk of each colour in the molds to make sure it turns out rainbow-y :)
Then you'll need to microwave it.
Most blogs recommend using a baking oven, but a microwave works just as well.
I suggest you keep a close eye on the melting process.
I did one minute per session, and keep going until it melted nicely
(You'll know because the chunks will turn into paint like substance)
& this is what it looks like right after I took it out of the microwave.
Super pretty blended colours!
But it'll be real hot, so you will need to place it in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Once you take it out of the freezer, you can pop it right out & it'll look like this;
Seriously, how pretty are these! & so cheap and easy to make!
You can use them to write as well, like normal crayons but you get a blend of rainbow colours :)
Good luck making these! (you won't need it since it's super easy anyways ;)
