We've probably all seen recycled crayons going around on the blogosphere for some time now, but we think this is a great twist to it. Use winter or holiday shape molds and you've got an easy ornament.
Collect the free crayons you get at restaurants like Elizabeth of Twelve Crafts Till Christmas does, use broken ones, or hit the dollar store. All you need to do is bake, and insert a hole to thread the ribbon through. Give them out to your child's classmates like Elizabeth is doing, or add a crayon theme to your tree.
