Luminescent Stars





  • Waxed Paper
  • Crayons
  • Iron
  • Kraft paper or trimmed paper bag
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Closures / ribbon or brass binders


  • Cut a long sheet of waxed paper and then fold in half to create a crease. 
  • Place waxed paper on top of kraft paper or on the ironing board.      
  • Open waxed paper.
  • Use a cheese grater to create crayon shavings.
  • Sprinkle the shavings in an even layer on one of the folded sides of the waxed paper, the more wax that is used the more vibrant the color.
  • Fold the empty side of the waxed paper back over the crayon shavings.
  • Place another piece of kraft paper on top of the waxed paper.
  • Iron on medium heat; keep checking the wax. Once the wax has melted put aside to cool.
  • Cut stars of other designs out of the melted wax sheets and then hang individually or together to create garlands.
