Step 1: Get Supplies
-Crayons (any brand, but Crayola's paper came off easier than a store brand paper)
-Bowl or Bucket of Water
-Hot Glue Gun
-Heat Gun or Hair Dryer
Step 2: Spray Paint Your Pumpkin
If you want a uniform base look you can spray paint your pumpkin. I chose flat black and white for our pumpkins. Some of those doing this project with me got very creative with their spray painting.
Step 3: Let Dry
Step 4: Soak Crayons and Take Paper Off
I'm sorry that I didn't take a photo of this step.
Step 5: Hot Glue Crayons Around Stem
I did not get a photo of this step either.
Step 6: Melt Crayons
Use your heat gun or hair dryer to melt the crayons. My heat gun works much better than my hair dryer.
Leave the wax a little thicker at the top to cover the hot glue.
You can make the rivulets branch off by holding the heat gun closer to the pumpkin.
Please note that the stem is dry and will start smoking and possible catch on fire if the heat gun is held very close for even a short length of time.
