Crayon Art

I'm a total Pinterest addict! This project has been on my to-do list from the very beginning. I just knew it would look great on my son's wall, and I was right! Here is the finished product:
So here are the supplies needed:
64 count Crayola crayons + 48 Count Crayola Crayons
16 X 20 inch stretched canvas
Glue gun and glue sticks
blow dryer
finishing spray

What I did:
1. Took out the colors of crayons I wanted and arranged them according to my liking. I arranged them in a wave-like pattern because I think it gave it an interesting twist instead of just lining them up.
2. Glue the crayons onto the canvas, making sure the Crayola name is showing.
3. Use the blow dryer on hot/high setting to melt the crayons.
4. Spray with finishing spray.

This cost me about $10 and took less than an hour. LOVE IT!!!

 (and a BIG thank you to my sister who helped me make it!!!)

    1. It holds everything together? I just used what my sister had, but you can get it online or any hobby/art store. It's something like this:

  5. In this article I need to discuss a portion of the generally excellent reasons why we should all have a side interest. Ideally they will prod you on consistently or even each day to take up a side interest, continue an old one or increase a current energy.best drone for photography
