The DIY melted crayon painting is an easy way to to decorate those plain walls with some bright and colorful colors with easy and convenient materials.

Step 1: Materials

you will need.......

- a canvas

- a hairdryer

- a hot glue gun

- paper towels or bags

- crayons (I used 23)

- painters tape (optional)

Step 2: Glue

Hot glue the crayons down in a straight line. Make sure to have the Crayola logo up. Use painters tape to make a design (optional).

Step 3: Protect Walls, Furniture, or Carpet

Set up something that will save any marks or stains that might splatter.

Step 4: Melt the Crayons

Point the hairdryer down and start to heat up the crayons. Keep melting the crayons until you get your desired painting.

Step 5: Touchups

Peel off the tape. Paint and touchup the excess crayon to make it look neater.

Step 6: Finished:)

Finally finished! Hang it up to brighten the walls!

<p> I am going to do that one day. loves it</p>
<p>o 0 o i luv it</p>
<p>how long does this take </p>
<p>This took me about 30 minutes.</p>
If I had several to melt at the same time, could I stand those upright in the oven or would the smell jack up my oven?
<p>Do not do that! It would totally jack up your oven! Stick with the hairdryer!</p>
<p>I was looking at how much the image had changed from step 4 to step 5...</p><p>I was wondering, did you just keep melting the crayons to get the fuller look? Or did you use the paintbrush to help spread the wax?</p>
<p>i kept melting the crayons. The wax is too thick to use a paintbrush and it would jack the paintbrush up.</p>
These are fun! I love making them
I just can't wait to try this....I already have a couple ideas bouncing around in my head! Thank you for sharing!
<p>Looks good! The idea to use tape to personalized the design. Nice work!</p>
