~Crayon Canvas Art ~ I just had to try it~

As soon as I saw this on Sara's Blog I knew I had to try it!  So many happy colors!
Sara found here inspiration from here!
All you need is an artist canvas, crayons ( Crayola work the best) a glue gun and then a heat source.
 Row all of your crayons however you want, I choose a rainbow of colors.
Then use a hot glue gun to glue into place.
 Make a nice neat row!
 I do love crayons.......
 Once they are all glued into place I propped mine up against a glass vase to hold it up right.
Make sure to put some sort of protection under your canvas I used paper towels!
Then I used my heat gun (the others have used a hair dryer on the hottest setting).
 and just go back and forth over the crayons until they begin to melt. 
Mine made a more drippy pattern.
 I just LOVE it!
 I think this would be a great gift for a teachers classroom!
Christmas is right around the corner!
I already had a glue gun so this total project cost under $10.00!
I hope you try this project! It is sure to brighten up any room!
