Crayons Melting for the Crayon Club

Most bloggers out there have seen this project in some shape or form, the crayons melting. Like you I was really wanting to try it, but I wanted to try something different with it. I decided I wanted to add wood letters. I use to work at a daycare called the Crayon Club. I thought making this for them would fit so well. I'm still friends with everyone there.

I grabbed different letters to spell Crayon Club. I liked the funky change between fonts and sizes. The choice came because Michael's didn't have all the letter I needed in the same style. I realized that I like it much better any ways. I placed them all in this box to spray paint them. I had leftover paint and it's so much faster.

Once the letter were dried I hot glued the crayons and letters to the canvas.

Next comes the fun part. Blow drying! Place something underneath it. I put it back in the box. First I was a blond and had it on high..... wax was wanting to go everywhere. One color flying away and I had a light bulb moment and realized it needs to go on low.

The wax would hit the letters and go around. Love it! It was exactly what I wanted it to do.

Here it is finished! I will be giving it to the daycare later today. I hope they like it!

I love that, sister! I bet the boys would love to do something like that sometime.

Hmmm...I wonder how it would turn out if you did the crayons first and then glued the letters on...
