While working on multiple projects I get board and like little projects that are quick. Melting crayons seems to be my go to quick project lately. Here are a few I listed in my shop today. I think the mermaid one is my favorite one to date.

How do you make your own? Get a canvas, some broken bits of crayons, a glue gun, and a hair dryer. You're set. I hot glue my crayons on strips of cardboard so I can control where the drips land, but you can easily glue right on the canvas. Heat with the hair dryer and you have art. The end that simple.
Here are some ideas that I have made.
Melted glitter crayons and an elephant
More melted glitter crayons and a whale
Rainbow and a pot of gold
fairy and a tree
tree we made for Christmas, I added a girl on a swing
this was also for christmas and was rain and I added a couple under an umbrella to this one
and finally this one was for christmas and I hot glued silk flowers to the top
Check out the ones available for purchase in my shop Bighead417 .

I had a tshirt from Old Navy that had seen better days, BUT was super soft and comfy. Try as I might I just couldn't toss it in the thrift store pile. So it just hung in my closet waiting.... until I found a little girls dress with a nice pattern at the thrift store.
As you can see there were some stains on it :(
I folded the shirt in half and decided where to make my cut
Then I chopped it off ABOVE the stains.
Took the little girls dress and cut the bottom off of it. This was a fuller sundress so it worked perfectly.
Pinned the two together.
Ta-DAH Franken shirt LIVES!
Here it is on, yes a crappy photo but you get the idea.
Next time you have a shirt you just can get rid of, use your imagination and make it new again! Good luck and have fun!
