I was a little (okay, a lot) worried when Jess brought this palm tree freebie home. I definitely wasn't hanging it on my walls. So I was relieved when he said he thought I could "do something with it". I knew exactly what. Ever since I saw the colorful wax dripping in photos all over Pinterest, I've been wanting to do my own version of melted crayons on canvas. I used gray paint to cover over the tree picture. Next, I peeled the paper off a bunch of crayons that retired because their points were no longer points. I don't know why I saved them I just did. With some help from the kids I ran the crayons through my hot glue gun. I love staring at the finished piece, it makes me happy.

She used a hairdryer to melt glued on crayons down the canvas.
I couldn't resist trying a heart shaped one. I used glue as a guide to keep the melted wax inside.
