Crayon Creation

I came across this crayon art project on PInterest here, and as things normally go in my head, I thought simple enough, I can do that, no directions needed, right?

I pulled out a blank canvas, and used glue stick to equally space the crayons out


Then I hot-glued the crayons in place, and pulled out my hairdryer and began to blow over them on the hot setting. What a catastrophy creation!

After starting on the kitchen table, and getting crayon wax all over the table, my clothes, the floor, the blinds....you name it, and it had crayon wax on it... I put the canvas inside a shopping bag and proceeded to blow-dry the crayons. It helped to somewhat contain the mess that ensued. 

The finished product is pretty neat, not really sure what I'll frame it in or where I'll hang it yet, but kind of just wanted to try it. Might be really cute for the kids playroom. 

Overall a cute project, but I would definately recommend doing it outside!
