Crayon heart wall art - made this for my little girl, easy to make, just arrange in a heart and melt crayons with a blow dryer (there will be lots of splatter fyi).. add a picture in the middle to use it as a frame

    About 8 inches across, 6inches tall .. I just printed out a heart shape on word from my computer so you can change the size a little to suit what you want

    Did you have to take off the crayon wrapper before you melted it? And also did you place all of the crayons all at once?

  • Cindy Beasley
    Cindy Beasley • 2 years ago

    No you can leave the wrappers on, and yes I put all my crayons on exactly how I wanted before I started melting them

    How did you get everything to melt out so perfectly? All of the crayons that are at angles to the bottom all have the wax melting exactly in that direction! Did you put on just the ones going that direction, then when they were melted add and melt the others? This is just gorgeous and I would love to try it! :)

    I put them on all at once, when you melt just rotate the canvas with one hand and point the blow dryer with the other, the crayons dry pretty quick

    Neat idea but why are the crayons in this picture not melted at all?

    Working on this piece this weekend...I already done several and they came out beautiful. I had to get an 18X18 inch Square canvas for this to work....there are about 76 crayons in the piece....I also don't use a blow dryer but a Heat Gun I bought at Lowes....much easier to control the flow pattern of melted crayons....I have already had a piece "commissioned" and sold...I did it on a black canvas instead of white...turned out beautiful."..wish I could figure out how to upload my own photos!

    @ Sharon Koogler Stewart you take the crayons off the canvas that you have melted and glue brand new crayons of the same color back in place and viola! you have fantastic, beautiful, original art...very easy! Use a heat gun that you get from the hardware store...or you can use a blowdryer.

    @Amanda Augenstein I LOVE that idea! I had actually thought of the same thing. We have a lot of different kinds of stars hanging on our wall and I thought this would make a welcome addition to it....

    I am doing this for a grade school auction, there will be a total of 72 crayons. What size is your heart in the center? I LOVED this project. I took pics of the kids hands making hearts and am photo collaging them in the center.

  • Becky MiMi Gatian
    Becky MiMi Gatian • 2 years ago

    The heat is very small in the center because on this on the crayons face the edge of the canvas! I haven't measured it though!

  • Becky MiMi Gatian

    Mine is an 18X18 square canvas,...though this is not my work!

    I don't know what size heart I used, I just found a heart shape I liked on google images and pasted it to a word document then printed it out.. I would estimate that its about 7 inches wide.. but you can play around with the shape to get it how you liked it.. my canvas was 18X20.. once you get the size of the heart that you want then just line the crayons up around the heart in whatever pattern you want... it doesn't have to be exactly 72 crayons or any exact size, just whatever you think looks good on your canvas

    @Cindy Beasley - Thank you for posting this I think it is great. Also thank you so much for answering questions... I also have one question about taping the crayons down...can you explain how you did this. I dont have a clear picture in my head how to do this. Thanks!

    I used electrical tape and just took strips and looped them around and stuck it back on itself so it would be sticky on both sides, fold the tape kind of like in a circle then stick it on the canvas and stick the crayons onto the tape. Make sure you leave the paper on the crayons. And use two strips of the folded over tape per about 3-4 crayons, so the crayons should have tape behind them by the tip and the back of the crayon so they hold in place better when you blow dry

    Quick question! I would like to do this soon, so if I don't want the crayons to be on there in the end, just the white heart with the paint splatter, will the crayons just come right off even though they are hot glued/waxed? Or will I have to do something else to get them off without messing my art up?

    can u add a photo of the final pic with the picture you put in it as a frame so I could see how it looks, I made this so thanx for the idea it looks great but cant decide if I want to add a photo inside..i didnt read to put a paper in the middle before starting to keep away splatters so it turned out perfect except ONE splatter ahh so was thinking of the photo idea...THANX!

    i did this today, used hot glue to keep the crayons on and worked perfectly fine. pinned final product to board "things i've done thanks to pinterest" :)

    @Ashley Morgan I used electrical tape to keep my crayons down, but you need to use a lot cause the crayons will move around.. but then you could easily take them off, I took off the melted ones to glue down the fresh ones

    I tried this today for my craft club project. I bought a pack of 7 12x12 canvases at michaels for $12 and 96 crayons for $4 using coupons! I only needed 45 crayons. Hot glued crayons in place and used hair dryer with attachment to easily direct heat. Worked best on high with hot setting. The crayons didnt move.This is an affordable craft that's easier than it looks. I love how it looks on my wall for V Day and the crafters are excited to try it too! Thanks!
