Now you are ready for the fun part!!  I recommend doing this somewhere where you don’t mind wax splashes.  I put down some wax paper and newspapers and I still got crayon wax on my bathroom wall!  I melted the splashes off the wall to remove after I finished the project.

After you have your area prepared, use a blow dryer on high to melt the wax.  It will take a few minutes for the wax to warm up and drip.  You can choose how much wax you’d like to melt on the canvas.

I added a blow dryer attachment to better direct the hot air.

I melted the crayons until there was a thick, colorful layer across the canvas.

You can also do this project with your little ones.  Let the wee ones choose the crayon colors and put them in a row.  Older kids can help you with the gluing and crayon melting.
