Introduction: How to Make a Crayon Picture
This picture is made not just from crayons being scribbled on paper, but also from the crayon wrappers! Here's how to make your own piece of artwork.
Step 1: Materials
a BUNCH of crayons with their wrappers attached
3 or more pieces of paper
tape (lots! I went through a whole roll ;))
a knife/ scissors/ a rotary cutter
Step 2: Unwrapping
So now you have to unwrap all those crayons. For my "materpiece" :P I decided to use pinks and reds to make a heart and other colors for the frame part. At first I tried to unwrap the crayons. DO NOT TRY THIS! I failed epically, and was sitting on the floor in despare before I happened to think of my rotary cutter! So I sliced the wrappers open. You can often get "two" wrappers from one, as the overlap on crayola crayons is large. Unwrap all your crayons!
Step 3: Scribble Time!
Now you can unleash your inner preschooler. Take all your naked crayons (scandalous, I know) and scribble on your papers!
Step 4: Attach the Papers
Read the title, and do as it says!
Step 5: Draw Your Design
Draw your design in the middle. I colored in my heart so that it would look more put together. Sorry, no pictures of that.
Step 6: Add the Wrappers!
Glue, tape or magically attach the wrappers in whatever design your little heart desires! I did a "frame" out of cool colors, but you can do anything!
Step 7: Done!
Now hang it and take a step back. Perfection.
We have a be nice policy.
