What I Did: It looked easy enough. I followed the directions by gluing the crayons to the top of the pumpkin. The instructions said to use a hair dryer on high. I expected the wax to melt and drip nicely down the sides of the pumpkin. What I got, was wax everywhere! Wax all over me, the table, the chair, floor…everywhere! And the colors all melted together to create a lot of black.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Since my fiasco, I looked online to see if anyone else had the same experience. What I found is that others put their pumpkins in a big box, so the wax would be contained. Great idea! The next time I try this, I will do just that…and as for the colors, I will try melting one color at a time!

    Waste of a pumpkin. Waste of a project. I don’t understand why anyone would do this..

    High heat, not high breeze. Most hair dryers produce the same heat with a higher airflow on the highest setting. Someone never taught this person common sense.
