I saw a picture on Pinterest that said, 'I Actually Made Something I Found On Pinterest!'. Well, I've made a lot of food I've found on Pinterest. And this Crayon project is ALL OVER Pinterest. I fell in love with it the moment I found it. And I had some white-washed boards that had been sitting around for MONTHS just waiting for a painting.
So I started by hot-gluing the crayons to the top of the board. I bought a 64 pack plus another 24 pack and took out most of the blacks and browns. I used some grays to flank each side of the picture and I kinda wish I didn't. But I still love it.
Then I used the blowdryer on high and hot and melted the Crayons. They start to get shiney and start to drip. I had to adjust the angle of the board so it didn't drip as quickly.
My mom thought the hot glue was going to melt, but it held up.
I went over the big glops with the dryer to kinda break them up.
I love the way it looks. My friend called while I was doing it and she said one of our other friends did it last week... So maybe everyone will have one. But I still love it. And it was easy as pie.
Not sure if I'm going to leave it on my stand or hang it.
More Pinterest projects to come!
