Last night I finally made a melty crayon craft. I’ve been wanting to do it for months, and last night I finally found the time! As soon as it was dry I hung it up in my room. So cute! And, so easy! How-to guide is below! Find the inspiration here.
- box of crayons
- hot glue gun
- flower petals (or fake flowers)
Take the wrappers off the crayons. Heat the glue gun. Load crayons like a glue stick. Tilt the canvas and apply the color and let it drip down. It’s really that easy! I glue gunned the petals on after the wax dried, and bam! Pretty new sunflower art!
The wax tends to spray, so make sure you lay some paper or something down. Don’t force the crayons to melt fast! They’ll spray or fly across the room! Remember that the colors may mix a little so be careful of using a dark and then a light color. Make sure you let the wax drip down, don’t draw the lines. It’ll look weird and flat.
There are other ways to do it too. If you want the crayons at the bottom, glue the crayons (with their wrappers) to the canvas. Then, get a hairdryer and melt the crayons that way. I’ve never tried it, but that’s the way a lot of people do it!
