Crafty Teen

In my house they refer to me as 
"Crafty Mom"

Today, let me introduce you to my
youngest... "Crafty Teen"

Kenley found a project on Pinterest, it came out great and we'd like to share it with you today....

First she glued crayons in rainbow order 
onto an artists canvas...

Next she gathered her supplies...
newspaper and a hairdryer

She held the hairdryer to the 
crayons and waited for the melting process...

Using a hairdryer, be careful the dripping crayon doesn't blow around the canvas. 
A heat gun might work better.

It was a lot of fun watching the colors run.

It was a great project and she created a beautiful work of art!

  1. My 13 year old "crafty girl" saw this and is now gathering supplies! Great job!

  2. She needs to join my daughter who just turned a pair if shoes into "Skittle" shoes by meticulously gluing them on, making a new tongue from the candy wrapper, and hand painting the shoestrings to match! Very cool craft your daughter did!

  3. Clever girl! I have seen this done by holding each crayon above the top of the canvas then heating with a heat gun, and it works a treat. It's great to see the next gen get inspired into creating! Go Kenley! Hx
