Midnight Art

Who doesn’t love a late night art session?

Me and Emersyn were browsing Pinterest at about 11:00 last night and she saw “melted crayon art.” And of course, she insisted on doing it.

Right then.

We decided to try to create a cross, so we used some brown contact paper from our craft stash. It wasn’t very sticky, so we traced the edges with hot glue.

Once the girls had the color pattern they wanted, they started hot gluing the crayons down.

Once they were all glued down, we stood the canvas upright and started blow drying.

Once we melted the colors as much as wanted, we left it alone to dry.

Then we busted out a bottle of glue for some more fun!

For this project, you’ll only need 2 simple items:

But a silly face is always fun to have!

I couldn’t believe that Emersyn had never covered her hand in Elmer’s glue and pulled it off!

Parental failure, right there!

 Just spread the glue all over your hands and let it dry. Once it’s completely dry, start pulling it off. (I never really did understand the fascination with this, but kids sure do love it!)

By the time we finished peeling our glue off our hands, our wax was hard enough for us to remove the contact paper on our crayon art.

It’s not the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen, but it sure was fun to make!
