Melted Crayon Glass Ornament

I love all the melted crayon art on pinterest!! And I've had these glass ball ornaments for years that I wasn't sure what to do with. This cute baby game together in about 5 minutes!

Take one ornament and a couple crayons of your choice. I used purple & teal.

I broke them into 1/2 inch pieces and put 3 of each color in the ornament.

Heat with a hair dryer and swirl around as the crayons start to melt. You may want to wear a glove or hold the ornament with a washcloth. As I was turning it my fingers were feeling the heat. 
**Don't forget to cover your work area w/ newspaper in case any melted crayon drips out the top.

Isn't it pretty!?!

Add a pretty ribbon and hang on the tree. 5 minutes to prettiness. 
I can't wait to try different color combinations!!
