DIY Heart Shaped Crayons 

Using silicone heart shaped molds, take the paper off of the crayons. Using a knife, cut the pieces into ½ inch pieces. Place the crayon pieces in the mold in whatever color combinations you like, then place in the oven, at 150 degrees fahrenheit, for 15-20 minutes. After removing from the oven, let sit for 30-60 minutes before removing from the molds. Voila! You have your own DIY crayons!
