Make your own beeswax crayons DIY

DIY beeswax crayons


  1. Melt the beeswax pellets and coconut oil in a double boiler or a glass jar set in a pot of boiling water. Be careful not to let the water boil over the edge of the pot.
  2. Once the beeswax and coconut oil are fully melted, stir in the non-toxic powdered pigments until the desired color is achieved. Use more or less pigment depending on how light or dark you want your crayons to be.
  3. Carefully pour the mixture into silicone molds or other molds of your choice. Use a wooden stir stick to ensure that the pigments are fully incorporated.
  4. Allow the crayons to cool for at least 30 minutes. You can speed up the process by placing the molds in the refrigerator or freezer.
  5. Once the crayons are fully cooled and hardened, gently remove them from the molds. Use oven mitts to handle the molds if they are still hot.
  6. Enjoy your homemade beeswax crayons! They can be used just like regular crayons and are safe for kids to use.
