Melted Crayon Candles

Create a spooky ambiance just in time for Halloween with Melted Crayon Candles. Drip black, orange, and purple wax from crayons onto Dollar Tree's pillar candles for an eerie look. Simply heat each crayon with a blow dryer and allow the clean white candles to become a bit messy and speckled with colorful melted wax. Accompany the creepy candles with candleholders and a creepy cloth table runner, all found at Dollar Tree!

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • White Pillar Candles
  • Black, Orange, and Purple Crayons
  • Blow Dryer
  • Votive Holder or Candle Plates
  • Table Runner Cloth

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Select the black, orange, and purple crayons from the crayon box and remove the paper wrappers (see image #1).
  2. Begin to heat one crayon at a time on a hot, low blow dry setting. (So the wax doesn’t fly away from the candles!)
  3. Carefully drip the wax along the top and sides of the candle. Repeat with each desired color (see image #2).
  4. Hold the dryer directly on top of the candle to clear the colored wax from the top and allow it to drip down the sides (see image #3).
  5. Let the wax dry for five minutes before moving.
  6. Place candles in holders on top of your tablecloth. Light the candles, dim the lights, and watch the spooky mood shift!
