Supplies needed to make a melted crayon bouquet
(Supplies may vary by store, however, special store-to-store orders can be placed with a one-week turnaround. Substitutions will be suggested if a product is no longer available.)
Newspaper or Craft Paper
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Before you get started, you may want to cover your work surface with newspaper or craft paper, this could easily get messy. If you are using a hair dryer instead of a heat gun, test to see which setting works best for melting the crayons.
1. Select the colors you would like to use for your project. We used 9 crayons in purples, pinks and blues. We chose to leave the papers on our crayons but if you want a cleaner look, paperless is a good option.
2. Using a hot glue gun, glue the crayons along the bottom edge of the canvas with the tips facing up.
3. While the canvas is flat, use a heat gun to melt the tips of the crayons until the wax pools and all the colors touch.
4. Gently lift the bottom (crayon end) of the canvas and keep at an angle. Use the heat gun to melt more of the crayon wax and let it run the length of the canvas until you have a few “stems” for the flowers.
5. Lay the canvas flat until it’s completely dry. When it’s dry, use the hot glue gun to glue the blossoms on the “stems” of the bouquet.
