So, how did I created this amazing piece of art? Well, I'll tell you! And then you can make one for yourself!
What you'll need:
- Box of 120 count crayons. This is what I used so I would have extras.
- Hot glue gun.
- Blank canvas. I used a 16x20, but you can go smaller or bigger if you want.
- Hair dryer.
- Black trash bags & tape.
Step 2: Tape up your black trash bags to the wall. The hairdryer will blow the melted crayon around and get EVERYWHERE so the trash bags will save your walls, carpet, etc.
Step 3: Put your hairdryer on the highest heat setting, but lowest strength setting. Again, melted crayon=big mess.
Step 4: Turn on your hair dryer, and melt the tips of your crayons. Gravity will pull the melted crayon down, and it'll create it's own little pattern. You can use the hairdryer to manipulate the dripping crayon, but be careful.
Step 5: Let the melted crayon dry for about 5 mins, seriously that's all it needs.
Step 6: Voila! You've created a masterpiece and everyone you know will be jealous!
Have fun! I had a blast making this thing, and it was SOOOO easy! It's something Charlotte will have in her room forever, and hopefully it'll be something she treasures when she's older. I plan on making one for each kid in the future.
