We've all seen them on Pinterest — canvases or frames or boards covereed with crayons and melted with a heat gun to create stunning effects. I love to see a craft stepped up a notch so the hearts and wings and other shapes these crayons have been melted into have been fun. But I wanted to melted crayon art but with more of an art edge, somethign I woudl actually hang on my wall without it looking to much like kid art.
I mean, with crayons at 50 cents a box for Back to School, how can you resist at least TRYING this trend out?
I decided to take this trend up a little notch – why not add text and an artsy quote? This puppy is actually going on my wall in my office — pretty, fun, and inspiring!
Here is how I made it:
