Melted Crayon Art on Canvas

Melted Crayon Art on Canvas

My daughter wanted to try Melted Crayon Art on Canvas.
I had seen these floating around on Pinterest many times.
We decide we wanted to leave the paper wrapping on the crayons. 
We liked what the paper said.  We bought Cheap Crayons at Walmart.
The paper said Craz Art. 
Probably would have melted better without.  
But first try and I really love how they turned out.
We bought 2 Canval and 3 boxes of Crayons.
Spent a totol of $15.00 at Walmart

First we separated the crayons by colors and name.
(This took a minute) 
Good thing my 12 year old is into sorting.
Then we hot glued the crayons on to the canvas.
(This for me was the fun part)
I love my hot glue gun.

We placed a trashbag under the canvas.  
I suggest old t-shirt you don't mind tossing in the trash later.
(I learned this the hard way)
Then with the hair dryer on high start melting the crayons.

We decided we wanted to add some 
vellum flowers 
I had already made up.

Happy Crafting!
