About a month ago, I was searching online for a project that my kids could make for my mom, their grandmother, for mother’s day. I found this fun idea using crayons (which we have a lot of). Making it and giving it to her would be our way of giving her flowers. If you are a house with toddlers/preschoolers then you probably have a lot of crayons laying around! My kids and I completed this amazing project and I failed to take pictures of the process so I am recreating the art for the Daily Buzz 9×9 May Flowers theme.
- Canvas – any size (I used an 8 x 10)
- Crayons – greens (I did not have enough greens since I did this project once before so I decided to mix in browns and yellows)
- Hot Glue Gun (harder to use if you peel the paper from the crayons because the heat melts the crayons as you try to glue them on the canvas) or a strong glue
- Hair dryer
- Artificial flowers (can buy cheaply from the dollar store) or make your own flowers (I bought mine from Michael’s Craft store)
Gather as many crayons you will need to lay vertically on the short side of your canvas
What do you think? I was pleased with the finished result. Some of my stems did run to the end of the canvas but I am still happy with it!
