Good Things Utah Pin of the week.... Rainbow Crayon Art Canvas!
I used this pin to create this fun crayon art!
I followed their directions almost exactly...
Hot glue them to the top of your canvas. Think about the crayon labels if you would like them to all show a certain way!
Heat each section of crayon with the embossing gun and watch it melt! (SO FUN!)
18x24 canvas... I got mine on sale at Michaels.... a 2-pack for just $4.99!
Crayola Crayons $7 plus I used a few at my house I had laying around to make BOTH canvases.
Total Cost $12 for both canvases!!!
This was so fun! I made my KIDS do this and I just took the pictures. It definitely seemed like it would be really hard to manage but it worked JUST FINE! Plus, it only took us about an hour to make them both! The blog mentions to not use a blow dryer. Of course, we had to try both ways. I do think a blow dryer or a heat gun both work. It is just a different look when you are using a dryer. The heat gun seems to give you a much better ability to have control of where the crayon ends up! Here is a canvas my oldest daughter made with a hair dryer:
I would DEFINITELY recommend this fun pin as a great Back to School art project with your kids!
