Melted Crayon Canvas Project Kids Will LOVE!


This unique project is a fun process art activity using melted crayons!  Your child will love creating this melted crayon keepsake project on canvas.

I thought making our own Melted Crayon Canvas would go perfect during our current row of, "Harold and the Purple Crayon."

Last week I made a craft store run to pick up a pack of canvases, cheap crayons, and whatever else I found ; )

There are so many different ways create your own melted crayon art project, but in the end we decided to do a crayon resist of my son's name!    Spoiler alert, but he LOVES his new name art project!

Melted Crayon Canvas How-To

I had Big Brother pick the crayon colors to use and I glued the crayons to the top of the canvas with hot glue.  No need to pick the wrappings off the crayons.

Next, we added letter stickers spelling his name in the middle of the canvas.  Press down really well on the stickers and smooth out any wrinkles.

Set up this project inside a giant box OR lay an old sheet/towels around your work space as the crayons do splatter!

1. Simply arrange your crayons on the canvas with hot-glue

2. Blow-dry away!  It'll take a few seconds to get the crayons heated up to melt

3. Watch your crayons melt away!

** The crayons did get under the canvas while blow-drying, but didn't bother us.

To make the name stand out more, you could take some white paint and paint inside the letters.

This is one neat melted crayon name art project!
