Friday Crafternoon- Melted Crayon Art

Crayons can be used for a lot more than coloring, as we’ve seen with our crayon candle post. This project makes some really cool art, and every time you do it you will get a different result! All you need are some crayons, canvas, and a hairdryer. Follow the instructions here. Enjoy!

Friday Crafternoon- Colorblocked Candles

Have a bunch of old crayon stubs laying around? There are tons of cool crafts out there that use crayons, but this one makes a really unique decoration (and gift!) and the color combinations are endless. It doesn’t require a lot of supplies or prep, either, and what you do need can be found at craft stores for cheap. A tip: buy some essential oils to mix in with the wax and you’ll have a cool candle that smells great, too!

Friday Crafternoon- Gouged Frames

If you are looking for a nice and easy gift idea, look no further than these instructions on how to make gouged frames with a knitting needle (or other sharp blunt object) and crayons. The wooden frames needed for this project are very inexpensive and can be found at any craft store in the unfinished wood section. If you do not have a knitting needle, you could use any other similar object- perhaps an unfolded paperclip! Have fun!
