Taking my inspiration from this beauty Ashton and I made this piece for his room. He thought the process was pretty cool
If I would do it again though, I'd buy a pack of brand new Crayolas instead of raiding the crayon bin and using no-name crayons. The wax was a little runny, almost greasy, so I let the wax cool a few times and then shot it with the blow dryer again.
I also attempted something just for DH, although Ashton kinda ate them all. When I saw this link for microwave potato chips I just HAD to try them. They turned out much better than expected, even though I forgot to PAM the plate the first time...this is the amount you get from one potato:
The only thing I'd do different next time (and I will be doing this again!) would be to pick up some sea salt to season with. Regular table salt just didn't seem to cut it.
I also made some homemade laundry detergent and fabric softener, both of which I'm rather impressed with. I added some essential oils (lavender) so I wouldn't miss the store bought scents too much, and the only difference I've noticed is that the clothes are less static-y then they were! Will definitely be keeping this one up!
