Upcycle Crayons into Unique Art

When I first saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it. I'm a teacher, so worn-out crayons are plentiful in my life. :)

Time: 10-30 minutes


Painted and dried canvas
old crayons
hot glue gun
hair dryer
print-off of the image you want to use


1. Hot glue crayons onto the top of canvas 
2. Put your hair dryer on the hottest setting and hold close to crayons 

3. Continue melting until you get the look you want (I was so surprised by how fast they melted!) 
4. Cut out desired photo, paint it if necessary, and mod-podge it onto canvas (*note* it may be better to do this step before melting crayons) 
5. Let Dry then add whatever words you desire to the canvas
