Bonus Tutorial{Crayon Art}

Hi everyone!

It is Dee, your CSI Girl again with a BONUS tutorial.



It is, as you know, Back to School Week here at The CSI Project.

We have had some great tutorials. I hope they have inspired you.

Have you seen all of the crayon art that is out there? I was really inspired to make my own.

This can be a great teacher gift.

Just personalize it by adding the teacher’s name or name of school. Even your child’s grade and add a picture.

 The possibilities are limitless with a little creativity.

This was easy to make too!

School Supplies, I mean Craft Supplies needed are:

~ Canvas of your choice

~ Box of 24 crayons{I used all but one. The white one}

~ hot glue

~ Ribbon, buttons or any embellishments you would like

~ Hair dryer or heat tool

I used my Wagner heat gun. I love this tool because it is perfect for crafting and taking off pesky labels.

You can find them here.

I started off with a blank canvas from my craft room and added this cute red ribbon to the top.

I did 3 strips and then hot glued these cute big buttons on. This just looks school-ish. Probably because of the  primary colors.


Now, add the crayons with hot glue. I divided my crayons into color shades and then lined them up in a pattern.


All on and now the fun part. Be sure to grab a paper towel because the wax melts and could melt on your surface.

Keep the canvas upright and turn on heat tool or hair dryer.

I used a low setting because I wanted to control the wax a bit and not rush it.


I did one section at a time. I kept the heat gun up and going down onto crayons.


Let it dry and you are done.


 Now, you can embellish however you like. Like I mentioned add the teacher’s name or school. Add a square of scrapbook paper and a picture of you kid. Then, with vinyl or more paper add the grade.




There are so many ways you can get creative with crayons and a canvas. Go ahead and try!

I also love this heart crayon art found here.  


 Be sure to Create. Share. Inspire someone today!

Hope you have a COLORFUL day!
