Melted Crayon Art Projects

Melted Crayon Art from JK Create


Melted crayon canvases are popping up all over the place.  This beautiful one from JK Create is the first one I remember seeing pinned on Pinterest.  You should check out all of the amazing pieces she sells on Etsy.

So it got me thinking about what other ways you could use melted crayons for art projects, since you wouldn't need the help of a blow dryer or oven to melt them here right now.

Here are some fun ideas I found.

Sam's Scrap Candy created a melted crayon canvas of her own, but added a personal touch with hand prints:


If your artists are younger, you can leave some crayons that they have arranged on canvas out in the sun like this art project from Clumsy Crafter:


If the artist is older, you can let them melt crayons over a candle like Ideals to Life:



And last, but not least (actually one of my favorites) is this melted crayon Impressionist style piece from  Everything Burger:


Happy Melting!

I've seen this a few times on pinterest but never noticed it was from an etsy shop! Wow! I love all the different color inspirations she uses and now Im just itching to make a peacock colored version of this.
