Seen this project yet on Pinterest... like a million times? My creative daughter decided to tackle this the other day. She purchased her own canvas + a box of generic crayons (she found the Up & Up box of 24... Target's brand... for only 25 cents). I like the look of the generic crayons with the polka dots. Every time I've seen this on Pinterest it's been with Crayola crayons... so the Crayola logo is on there. This is way more cute!
The instructions on Pinterest say to put them on your canvas with a hot glue gun. After they are adhered... heat the crayons with a hair dryer until they melt, causing that dripping effect. She said the hair dryer wasn't melting them, so Bob suggested she use one of those long Bic lighters. I found this out after the fact. It worked, but I'm not going to suggest that. Especially if you have a 12-year old doing the project & you're not aware of what's going on. No one needs to burn the house down.
She added her own text to the bottom. I said, "You wrote that? That's so cute!"
She said, "Well I wrote it in pencil first in case I made a mistake."
The girl never ceases to amaze me...
