Crayon Melt


Me and the girls decided to do a quick little craft project today to brighten up a small 'Art Supply' room we have in the house an i thought you might like me to share it with you.
The room is up in the attic so it's quite dark and dingy with only a small sky light and it has been screaming out for some colour since i moved in.
Today was the day that it finally got what it needed.

Supplies can be found at the pound shop so really doesn't cost much at all.
I actually had all that i needed to make this already lying around, so it was cost free for me.

To create the final product i simply took all the crayons we had and lined them up in colour order, you could do whatever order you like, i think using two colours alone would look awesome (eg. Black and pink).
We then hot glued them down at the top of our canvas and took a hairdryer on the hottest heat and simply let it melt the crayons as much or as little as you like, depending on what you want your end result to be. We melted outs a lot as i liked the fact the wax was building up and creating texture.

I love the way this turned out, and like i said, it was super easy to do. Definitely thing i will be making more, i might even try it on a black background, the possibilities are endless.

Is this something you might try out? Do you like seeing DIY/Craft posts or not?
