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.

    Cool art project with crayons, canvas and 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}
