Melted Crayons Tutorial

<crossposted from my regularly scheduled blog>

I had been meaning to make this super rad colourful canvas of happiness for a while now (found on Pinterest, of course) – and Aly’s back to school party seemed to be the perfect opportunity!

Materials:
Crayons [I used three boxes of 24 crayolas and took out the blacks and browns (Target had them on for 40 cents a box)], Canvas, Glue Gun, Hair Dryer

1) Glue gun crayons to the top edge of the canvas (I made sure the word crayola was shown on all of them)

2) Tilt canvas slightly and blow dry crayons. I did a couple of crayons at a time, and then went back over the whole thing. The hot/high setting splattered the paint, but the lower setting spread it. I used both.

Instant colour gratification.
