Melted Crayons Art

6 Materials
2 Hours

It is nearly fall and this is one of my favorite projects with my grandkids. We did art on canvas and pumpkins.

we used real pumpkins. White ones are the most lovely. Gather your crayons and decide what colors you want to use.

peal the paper of of the ends of the crayons and hold them next to the pumpkin. Use a hair dryer to heat up the crayons and watch them melt. This project is messy. Be sure you have lots of paper or newspapers to keep your work space clean. It will dry very quickly

Then we did this on canvas. Lean the canvas against the wall in the floor. Tape newspaper to the walls and floor because it will splatter. In this one we only pealed the ends of the crayons. Then glue the crayons on the canvas. E60 works best. But if you're careful with how you handle the finished piece you can use hot glue. The crayons can pop off with hot glue.

After doing this with my grands I taught a group of dear ladies. They were so creative

The blue tape is painters tape. Tape off areas you want to keep white. That shows the pattern when you are done.
