Valentine Heart Crayons {Pinterest VS Reality}

So in my search for a "Pinterest Perfect" life, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Here is the pin I found:

Here is my final result (with only the Pinterest worthy ones showing). I bought the little silicone heart plates at walmart for a $1.50 each! Totally worth it!

Here is my critique of this pin:

1. USE CRAYOLA brand crayons! The cheap dollar tree crayons melt into a grey mess and they burn too!

Here is a reality picture of my melted crayons: Most of my crayons turned into a swirly bubbly mess because I wanted to go cheap on the crayons and do mostly the dollar tree brand.

2. Use more pieces than you think. Here I was thinking only two pieces to three little pieces would be enough and I had to put them in the oven twice to try again!

3. put them in the freezer for 20 mintues afterward and have them cool for 10 more minutes after that. I broke some trying to get them out!


My daughter (5 years old) liked the end result to "collect" them. But doing them wasn't so fun. Peeling off all the papers for 30 mins was more tedious with a Pre-k kid than fun. But whatever, we spent time together.

My daughter coloring with them. Though she thought they looked so pretty that she just wanted to keep them.. Oh well!

So final thoughts: use Pinterest as inspiration for your own thoughts!

Happy Creating!
