I got so excited when I made this I had to rush on here and post it. I have been seeing all kinds of pins on pinterest of these crayon art on canvas, so I decided I was going to try it out and hang it over Zoe's big girl bed. First off I pick up boxes of crayons whenever I go out. There is something about a new box of crayons that excite me for some reason. I get Zoe some as well, but I save some boxes for myself. They are only .40cents. You cant beat that price. Then I splurged and bought the box of 64 crayons to get a bigger variety of pinks, purples and greens. I'm glad I did. I then went to Joannes fabrics today because I had a gift card and a coupon, and they were havin a big sale. BONUS! I got a 3 pack of 11x14 art canvas for 50% off. So I paid $12.50 for all three. Not bad considering I was going to glue crayons on it and melt them. Those canvas' can get pretty expensive.
This craft idea was put on my dreaming...post, so you can see the original. I choose to use a variety of three colors. This is going in my daughters room, which is mainly decorated in pink and green. So I choose pinks, purples and greens.
(so I was introduced to picnik, which is an awesome photo site. I decided to play around with my photos for this post)
I then lined up my colors and hot glued them. They didnt come out perfect, but this was my first attempt and it's for a 2 year old so its all good.
This was the fun part, it did splatter tho. So if you attempt this at home make sure you clear a big enough space and put lots of newspaper down (none of which I had...go figure)
I think it came out cute. Next time I'm going to do primary colors.
HAPPY LABOR DAY! Hope everyone had a very relaxing day :)
