DIY Wall Art: Melted Crayon Canvases


One of the aspects of being in college and slowly gaining that independence from your parents is learning how to manage money and survive on that infamous college budget. However, lack of funds is never an excuse to limit your creativity. That’s why decorating a dorm room or apartment can be such fun. You can be as creative as possible, and you can still stay within your budget. It’s all about DIY.



Whether it be photos or painting, any kind of wall art adds to a room’s decor. Buying pictures can get expensive and so can developing and framing your own photography. But with this DIY crayon and canvas wall art, going over budget won’t even be an issue.

What you need:

5. Old towel or something to spread on the ground

What to do:

Once you have all of your supplies, spread your old towel on the ground and lay out your canvas and crayons. Then, glue the crayons onto the canvas in any design that you want. Wait about 5 minutes for the glue to dry.

After this, plug in your blow dryer and turn in to the highest setting. Prop your canvas up and hold the blow dryer close to the crayons. Slowly move the blow dryer over all of the crayons. As they melt, the will begin to slide down the canvas creating some sort of rainbow pattern which will vary depending on how you organized your crayons.


Once the crayons are melted, leave the canvas propped up for about 20 minutes so that the crayon wax can continue to slide down the canvas and dry. When this is done, you’ll have a funky new item to decorate your space with. The most important thing to remember is that you can always stray from these instructions and make this project your own. Don’t limit your creativity!

    1. It dries almost instantly - as soon as the wax is cool. The best part is, if you mess up, you can fix it by heating the area again (it will run down the canvas more).

  47. Do You Need a Love Spell to Get Your Ex Husband Back?
    My husband and I have been married for 7 years and together for 11. We have 3 children, ages 16 months, 4 and 6. He recently left me and moved in with the woman he has been seeing for only 2 months. We have been living with my parents for a few years because I have been going through school and he has been just working security. He went through the police academy and has been having a hard time getting a police job. He is also in the Army National Guard. He was deployed in Afgahnistan Jan. 2014 – May 2015. I really think he has ptsd and depression. For the last few months he has been very distant from me and the kids. He hasn’t been hanging out with friends or doing activities he would normally do on a regular basis. He would kept saying we need to fix things. He would say I do this wrong and that. It was like he was trying not to love me. One day he’d kiss me and showed affection, we were still having sex, then the next day nothing. I’ve been trying to get him to see a counciler but he won’t. He has admitted he has PTSD and other issues but then other days he says he doesn’t. He thinks this women he is with now is his soul mate. He met her online and lied saying he has been divorced for two years. She has found out he’s married and still wants to be with him. I don’t see it working out. I love my husband so much, I hate what he has done. I just wish he would get some help if it is because of PTSD and depression. Do you think it might be? I still want him back. I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack who help people with the relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with that lady and he his with me for good and for real. i want You my friends who are passing through All this kind of love problem of getting Back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact him on this Email: { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com } you can also contact him on his website http://nwalutaspelltemple.yolasite.com . Thanks you Chief , i will always be testifying about your good work.
