I heart color.
I used to be really big into black and white and gray.
Big, bold, silhouette prints.
I still am.
But these days I am fiending for color.
I saw the melty crayon canvas on Pinterest a while back when I first found out about Pinterest,
and then saw that Meg did it.
So I pinned her project - right onto my color board.
So I made a quick trip to Michael's
(which BT-dubbs, um, first Sunday after Thanksgiving, that place is BANANAS)
But I found what I needed.
And a Canvas.
Its a good thing I took a minute to think this through because I almost only bought one 64 pack.
It is 4 crayons deep.
Four packs across the canvas did not fit.
Or two and a half 96 packs across.
Yeah, that probably doesn't make sense.
But if you ever do this project, it will.
So one 96 pack would be more than enough.
Okay, vague math lesson over.
Super easy project.
While my glue gun heated, I organized my crayons.
Once they were in order (which was the hardest part)
I started gluing.
Which was the easiest and funnest part.
Also, I have a very powerful blow dryer.
It started splattering like crazy.
Enter scrap paper below the canvas, and all over the floor.
Kind of torn between putting the blow dryer close to the canvas where it would get the most heat
but also the most splatter,
or keeping it farther back, but not seeing as much crayon meltiness.
I went with the former.
Which you KNOW what that means.
Blow dryer covered in wax?
Should have expected that.
In the end, I think it turned out FABULOUSLY.
And there is only a little bit of splattered wax on my cabinets and carpet.
But it totally blends in with the hot glue I dripped on the carpet last week.
