Sloth is A Terrible Thing

And my new year's resolution is going to try and post on a regular basis, because sometimes I just plain forget.

But as promised... The awesome thanksgiving place settings. These things are so cool! Great for any kind of party!

Bridesmate, Kathryn,made these fancy little things! And here is the rundown:

  • Chunk/Sliver crayons. I believe it is easier to do one color, and then start on the next while the first is drying.
  • Heat/Melt the crayon bits in silicone baking cups... this makes clean up MUCH easier.
  • Turn wine cups upside down on newspaper and then drizzle the melted crayon on with a spoon! Then twirl the cup! ... if you'd like
  • Let them dry!
You can even do it on plates!

I love this! And Kathryn did such a great job. She turned plain old clear plastic cups and plates into lovely pieces that enhanced the atmosphere... and I'm pretty sure she only used a few boxes of crayons... and the off brand kind! So it couldn't have cost more than $10.00 for the supplies (minus the plates and stemware, of course)
