Crayon Art

I am totally addicted to Pinterest. It was just what I needed to get my favorite website/blog stuff organized and by doing that it has jump started me again. It was getting way to cumbersome to find the things I wanted to do and then get them done. Now I'm in business!
When I saw the crayon art I HAD to do it and so did the kids. So simple and cheap. One canvas, one 64 box of crayons with a few extras from home to fill in.
Lindy and I hot glued them all down after the girls arranged them in the rainbow they wanted.
Paige was the photographer and got some very creative crayon shots!
Erin loved melting the crayons with the hairdryer and was also the DJ running songs on the computer to work by. We even got Ethan to help us melt so everyone had a part in creating. (Kyle gave moral support while working on his Veteran project!)
Our art is already hanging! It looks awesome on the stairway down to our family room and really pops out on navy blue walls.

Hairdryer prep! 

 Melting - how fun!


The more you melt the more drips and wax builds up towards the bottom. The top picture is our final piece.
