For the Love of Crayola

This craft without a shadow of a DOUBT receives the most traffic on my blog. The simple love of Crayola lies within us all 🙂 PLUS this is dead thrifty… as in under a Fiver to whip up!

Looking for effective, cheap, fun wall art for a kids room or even your craft space? Look no further!!
I found THIS on Pinterest..
As done by the lovely Meg at Whatever
So I decided, it couldn’t be all that difficult….  I bought a canvas, a glue gun (or superglue will do), and 2 packs of Crayola Wax Crayons.
Take out the blacks and browns and line them up like this.. then glue them to the canvas!

 

Enlist the help of a small child with a hairdryer. Blowdry the crayons and eventually they will start to melt. Beware, this is MESSY! Lay down plenty of newspaper first!

 

After 5 minutes or so, you will have this!

 

A magnificent piece of (probably) Picasso inspired Wall Art – just hang it on a hook and you’re good to go!

Do you have a Crayola addiction like me? Or another Crayola craft to share?? Leave a link in the comments and I’ll feature it on our Facebook page. 

Have a great week Ya’ll!

  1. Doesn’t that look fun! Do you leave the end of the crayons on the board with their wrappers or do you take them off – or does that spoil the flow of the colour gooo?
