This is a combination of a couple of different craft projects I've seen floating around on Pinterest. I had seen somebody do this project using thumbprints (SO cute!), but I have also really been wanting to give crayon art a try. So, this is what I came up with!
I started with:
- a 5x5 canvas (which was on sale for $2.49)
- a few old crayons (I used exactly 4. Purple, pink and 2 shades of red)
- a bit of masking tape
- a lighter
- my template (just google "heart template" you'll find something you love...)
FYI? The cheap crayons drip the best!! When you're done filling in your template (it took me maybe 20 minutes with plenty of interruptions from my 2 year old) simply peel it off. If you have any drips that fell inside the paper and outside of your heart, they easily peel off once they're dry.
