Hello all! I’m hoping everyone likes the autumn theme I have going on for this blog and if you don’t like it then too bad because here comes another autumn themed article. Let’s throw a twist on pumpkin carving.

Everyone has seen the melted crayons on a canvas which happens to be awesome, but that just isn’t festive enough for my taste. I decided to melt crayons on a pumpkin and that’s what I’m going to teach you.

Minimal materials needed:

  • Real white pumpkin (or orange, that’s what I’d choose)
  • Some of your favorite color crayons (about 16, good luck choosing)
  • A bit of tacky glue
  • One blow dryer

Getting down and dirty:

  • Unwrap your crayons and cut them in half
  • Glue the crayons to the top of the pumpkin
  • *This is where the fun begins* blow dry the crayons and watch the magic happen


Helpful hint: do this outside on a plastic bag, it makes for easy clean up.

Now that was pretty simple right? I hope you get the chance to try this out before the autumn season is over. Good luck!
