Is your home lacking some creative decorations? Spice it up with this quick and easy DIY crayon canvas piece!

Materials Needed:

  • Crayons (as many as you would like!)
  • Canvas (any size works)
  • Hairdryer
  • Hot glue gun
  • Newspaper


  1. Cover your workspace with newspaper, this will get messy!
  2. Arrange your crayons! They can be lined up at the top, or made into any shape
  3. Use your hot glue gun to attach the crayons to the canvas
  4. After the glue is dry, make sure to slant your canvas so the wax drips to the desired area
  5. Melt the crayons with the hairdryer; this may take some time, so be patient*
  6. Let the canvas dry
  7. Congrats! You just made a rad decoration!

*side note: when melting the crayons, aim the hairdryer at the tips of the crayons (not the back)
