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.......
