More Melted Crayon Art

Moderation is something I have never been really good at.  So, once I did the first melted crayon painting I totally wanted to do another.  I have been looking for something fun to put over baby C's dresser, so this is what I came up with.  At first, I was thinking pink, but baby girl's room has gone over-board in the pink department.  So, here is what I cam up with.  First, I painted the canvas a nice blue sky color and let it dry.  After that I picked out all the "grassy" looking crayon colors.  I have to admit I did a first draft of this with generic crayons that I found for $1.  It loked great until I went to melt them with my hairdryer.  It was so wierd, they just would not melt.  Finally, after overheating them, the wax did not drip it just kinda of crumbled. So, my point is that it is worth the extra money to buy the Crayola Crayons, they melt so smoothly. 
Okay, so once you hot glue the various "grassy" colored crayons on, just flip your canvas over and have a blast melting.  I think this is my favorite part.

Lastly, I bought some paper flowers in the scrap-booking section of Michaels.  Wow, they had a ton of pretty flower options.  I went with white flowers, but the possiblies are endless.

Here, is what it looks like hanging in baby girls room.

Now to come up with something for the boys room, hum.......


  1. Are you kidding me?? This is amazing! What did you make the flowers with?

  2. Pre-made flowers! Really, just bought them for like 3 bucks in at Michaels in the scrapbooking section.

  3. Seriously, this is awesome. Totally going to copy this! :)

  4. This is so fun and so pretty! I really want to make something like this - gorgeous!

    Also, just in case you didn't know, you're a no-reply blogger so I couldn't email respond to your comment... you can find a tutorial to help you fix that here. You'll probably get lots more comments from bloggers if you do that too! : )

  7. Melting crayons? I would have never thought of that. How I envy you for having triplets. I am a twin and wanted twins or triplets myself but it didn't happen. I found you on Tips from the Heart for the Home and I am now following you. I hope you will take a moment to stop by my blog and check out my kind of fashion (hair jewelry). I'm not just trying to gain followers with hopping, I'm trying to spread the word about a product I love. Here's my url I also have a facebook page which is I hope you can stop by there as well. It's the fastest way to hear about specials. Let me know if you have a facebook page too so I can return the favor.

And I adore Crayola, and have way too many crayons and crayon bits (every back to school year, I end up buying more, despite my best efforts. :-D)I'm really excited, I have some uber-nerdy star wars silicone molds that I intend to use for the cocoa and fruit snacks ideas, etc. :-D My brain's just exploding with more ideas, now. Thanks!
