DIY: Flower Decor ft. Melting Crayons

Hey everyone!

So, if you follow me on twitter, you know that I did a fun crafty DIY for my sister's birthday present.  Well, I finally gave it to her and here it is:

I got the idea off from here (Pinterest, of course!).  I used Sunflowers because they're my sister's favorite Here's what you'll need:

A Canvas (whatever size you want--Michael's has them!)
Fake Sunflowers-- $8.99 at Walmart
Glue gun
Hair dryer
Crayons- I got the cheapo kind because they're getting melted anyway :)

First, take all the "grassy" colored crayons; greens and yellows, and take off the wrapper.

Line them up along the end of your canvas that you want to be the grass and hot glue them on:

Take a hairdryer and melt the crayons down, however long you want the grass and stems:

Finally, cut your flowers off the stem and hot glue them onto your canvas:

And you're done! You have a creative new piece of wall art! :)  It's super easy, but also kind of messy, so make sure you melt the crayons over a trashcan.  Also, don't hold the hair dryer too close or you'll end up with melted crayon in your hair next time you use it (trust me...it happens!)
