|There are instructions all over the internet, so I'll just give a quick run down on how we made ours.|
I had canvas stored away for a different project I never made, so I dug it out for the kids. I also gave them the box of used crayons.
|I told them they could choose to leave the wrappers on the crayons or peel them. Mr. T chose to peel only the wrappers off his red star.|
They layed out their design, then I hot glued the crayons to the canvas.
|Mr. T used all sorts of crayons - different brands, different sizes. I'm sure if you want your wax to melt equally, you should use the same type of crayon.|
|The kids & I took turns using a hair dryer to melt the crayons. I will warn you that we had melted wax splatters all over, so cover yourself & your workspace.|
|At some point we decided we had melted the crayons enough. This is Mr. T's finished product. I don't think his star turned out exactly how he had planned, but I think he's still happy with his art.|
|Capt. N's started out like this...|
|... and became this after we melted it.|
|Princess K decided on this design...|
|... After we melted the crayons, it looked completely different.|
