Crayon Art

For my mother’s birthday, I found a fun DIY craft with crayons that is super easy and fun to do. It doesn’t take a lot of time, and you can personalize it however you want.



Crayons of any colors you want

Hair dryer

Canvas or a wooden board

Hot glue gun

Masking tape (optional)

Paint (optional)


The first thing that you have to do to make this is glue the crayons onto your canvas. I did mine a gradient going from red to purple, but you can put the crayons in whatever order you would like.

If you would like to create a design onto your canvas, you can use masking tape to create the design. Doing this will leave that section blank of any wax and will make it look like the wax went around it.

After the glue is dry, set the canvas up against something and begin blow drying it to melt the crayon wax down. Make sure that the canvas is upright so that all of the wax melts down.

Allow the wax to completely dry, then take off the tape if you chose to make a design. Be careful taking the tape off so that you don’t take off any wax with it.

If you choose, you can paint the design. I painted my heart a solid white, but you can use whatever color you choose to personalize this art.

Once the paint completely dries, you are all done! This art will look great as decoration, and it is fun to make! I really enjoyed doing this project, I think that DIYs are really great when you are bored or want to make a gift for someone. They are thoughtful and more exciting to give to someone.


I hope that you enjoyed making this craft, because I enjoyed making it a ton.
