DIY Rainbow Crayon Melt

http://www.glorioustreats.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Melted-crayon-rainbow-art.jpg

Hi everyone! With summer coming along soon, I decided to do a more colorful and outdoor project. This is fun to do with your friends on a boring day with nothing to do. It matches any room color! 

What you will need:

  • A canvas with the size of your choice
  • A hot glue gun with glue sticks for it
  • Crayons (choose the amount you are happy with)
  • A heat gun or blow dryer

Directions 

  1.  Sort your crayons by color, you may possibly want to avoid using black, brown, or grey, however it is your choice
  2. Line the crayons down in order until you like the order they are in
  3. Hot glue the crayons to the canvas
  4. Once that is done, lean your canvas against something so it is standing straight 
  5. Begin applying heat to the crayons, don't hold the heat gun/ blow dryer too close. After a few minutes the crayons will begin to melt
  6. Do this in sections until all the wax is melted

        This is almost a must for someone to do in the summer. There are pictures everywhere of peoples own crayon melt canvas and I think everyone should try it! I have not yet done this project myself but it is definitely on my summer bucket list. This is one of the most fun and rewarding DIYs you can do. You can use the colors you want and I have even seen some that have written a quote or a message on the canvas. You can personalize to your own taste in many different ways. 
        This can also work as a gift for someone. For my birthday my cousins made me one that had black and pink crayons. They stuck duct tape down in the shape of a B before they melted the crayons so when it was all finished and they tore the tape off you could see the letter B. The more time you put in to it the better your crayon canvas will look. It lasts a really long time and you won't need to worry about it losing its color.
        Have you ever done this DIY? If so please let me know how it turned out and if you used or did anything different than I have listed. I hope you all have fun doing this and have a great summer!
