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).
