Back To School DIY: Melted Crayons on Canvas

Back to school was always full of excitement. Getting new school supplies was one of my favorite things in the world, and I often wish it was still a yearly tradition! This DIY gets pretty close, though, and is a really simple way to make a festive and colorful piece of art.

    I always loved art projects like this when I was a kid... Melted crayon art - worth buying a hairdryer.

    Might try this with Mike's heat gun. Hair Dryer + Crayons = Art Fun idea for kids room art. Super easy... I have two suggestions: 1) don't put colors on the opposite side of the color wheel together... the melt together an turn brown (not so pretty) 2) If you have hairdryer attachment that focuses the air in one spot use it... it makes it easier to control the melting.

    I absolutely love this idea. Doing it with different colors, turning the canvas. I'm thinking a trip to the craft store is in my near future. :) Kids art project {1. hotglue 64 crayons on canvas 2. hand over the hair dryer 3. Enjoy the rainbow} http://bit.ly/Hrb1lI

DIY wall art using chipboard letters and acrylic paints... beautiful result.

The crayons are lined up along the edge and melted on a foam board using a heat gun. Specific heat is applied for the desired outcome of several defined drips. There is direct dripping from the crayon pieces that extends through the lower third of the board, with some drips extending all the way to the bottom. Wrappers are left on this piece to emphasized the melting of the crayons.

such a lovely and beautiful project. I'm sure I'll be using that soon.

Melted Crayon Art. Great way to recycle those crayons and get a great house decor!

melted crayon art - ooh I like this one better than the rainbow one

I see these old paintings at goodwill all the time that are not really my style but I hate the idea of them going to waste. This is a great way to use those paintings and keep the original art but flare it up for your own home!
