I wanted to make some art for the baby’s room using bright colors so I decided to use Crayola crayons to liven things up. The project took me a total of about 3 hours and looks really great now that it is complete. I bought all of the supplies at Michael’s and the total cost was about $28. Pretty awesome deal for 6 great little works of art if you ask me!
I was thinking this would be a really fun project to do with little kids so I guess it’s a pretty safe crafting project for people of all ages and skill levels.
Here is what you need:
- 1 box of 120 crayons ($11)
- 6 little wooden frames ($2 ea)
- Ribbon ($1)
- White paint ($2)
- Hot glue gun and glue (which I already had).
1. Paint the wooden frames white (or any color you would like). I left the middle unpainted since the crayons would cover it anyway.
2. Glue your crayons onto the wooden frame. You can do this in anyway you’d like. I chose to arrange the colors in gradients according to ROYGBIV (the rainbow) and at differing levels for a more dramatic effect.
3. Attach a piece of ribbon and hang!
It was so unbelievable easy and they look so adorable in our little guy’s room. I’ve been thinking of making more crayon art this summer, so I am certain there will be more to follow.
Such a cheap and bright way to liven up any room! You don’t have to be a child to embrace crayons. In fact, what better way to embrace the “Journey to Thirty” by celebrating that inner kid in you!?
