Melted Crayon Art

Since tonight is the first of my blog being up and running, I thought what better time to make my first post than now? I figure I can also let you in on some bits and pieces of my life as time goes on.

I was a stay at home mom for a little over 3 years when I decided to venture into getting a job in hopes to get my son around kids his age and get myself out of the house. I started my job November 7th, 2011 and worked there until June 2012 where I decided to leave and stay home for a bit. It wasn't long before I was craving that outside life again and got a job about a month later and was there for just under three months when things fell through and up until about 3 weeks ago I found myself being at home again.  I tell you this all because it brings me to the last few weeks I've had.

Lately I've been feeling something inside me itching to keep busy, so I started doing some crafts again. I used to love crafting and making things, usually for different holidays, and hadn't in quite some time. I've had a lot of projects sitting around that I either started or had the supplies for but never got around to doing and decided to get to work. In the last few weeks I've found myself doing several projects.

Today I present to you one of the many projects I did this past while. This is a project I've really been meaning to do. I have an account on Pinterest (click on link to go to my profile) and have come across the Melted Crayon art many times. I did one last year that was just the colors lined up in a row and melted. This time around I decided to do a little something different.

I took this pin:
And made this:

Since it's not actually my original creation, I wouldn't feel right explaining how to do it, so if you wish to do one yourself, feel free to visit this pin.

Until next time,



  1. That is so cool! I don't have a crafty bone in my body but I want to make one of these.

    1. It's really very easy to do! Takes nothing more than a canvas, some hot glue and gun, crayons, hairdryer, and a little imagination! :)
