::melted crayon canvas:

 Look what we made!!!  

My blog friend from Pink and Green Mama came up with this idea and I am so happy that she did.  What a smart lady. 

It's been way too long since this pretty lady and I have made something together. 

So we made this stunning art for the babies room.  It is the first thing we have for the new baby and I love it. 

We tested it out first by hot gluing some older crayons to a piece of old poster board.  Then we got out my heat gun and got crazy.  This should work with a hair dryer too, but my heat gun melted these puppies pretty fast.  

 Then we pulled out our canvas and got crazy with the hot glue. 

 I liked it just like this.

 But what fun would that be?
Se we got to melting.  We did it outside because it drips off the bottoms and can splash around a little. 

 Here you go little baby.  
Just for you.

   It cost us $18 for canvas and 48 crayons and this took about an hour to make.
