Hot Crayons

I’ve been jonesin’ to DIY something lately. I’ve noticed out in Blogland that a lot of you are sick of the heat. Well let’s take advantage of our crafty desires and the last few weeks of hot weather to melt some crayons.

I saw this on Craftgawker.com. If you haven’t been to that site, just go to The Gawkerverse. It will change your life.

So Suzi, at Unsimple Living, took the Pinterest Challenge showcased on YHL and Bower Power (2 of the 4 awesome ladies to partake). She found this melted crayon art and took on the project with her mom. It is adorable and a perfect punch of creative color to jazz up any space. I need this for my office/guest room! And the method? So easy.

It’s the only time I’ve ever read advice to leave something in a hot car to melt. Finally, a purpose! Usually melting anything that isn’t edible is a bad idea. This really makes me want to melt crayons. And maybe swirl them together. Finger painting melted crayons? They are non-toxic, so it can’t be bad, can it? One step at a time.

Check out Suzi’s crayon art. I hope I get the motivation to do the same and without making such a mess that it can be showcased in our place. Now I just have to find where I put my box of crayons…
