Easy Crayon Art!

Hi My Loves!!!

This week we did a super fun and easy art work project for Phoenix and Lily's bedrooms. I wanted to do something that would go with the color schemes of their rooms and be easy enough for Phoenix to help with. We made one for Lily and she helped point her little finger where she wanted everything to splatter haha!!

I decided to go with Crayon Art. It's super easy, so fun and Phoenix had so much fun making some beautiful art for his room :) My step brother BJ had made one a few weeks ago and said how fun it was, so I thought it would be perfect for us to do!


I highly recommend doing the blow drying part outside as the crayon melts and then splatters all over the place. Phoenix and his handy dandy hair dryer were having a great old time!

Here's Phoenix's finished art work. What a beauty! We loved doing this because it was a family project that 20 years from now we will still have something to show for it and be able to show the kids that we made them all together! I think that's so important ;)

Here's Daddy working his magic on Lily's. He blowed dried it so that it would resemble a flower and he did such a great job! He so creative!

The two finished pieces side by side. This would actually be really cool to do one HUGE canvas with all the colors of the crayons (minus brown and black and grey as those might go muddy)....

Can you see the flower in Lily's??

There is a face in Phoenix's and we attempted to put his handprint in there but that didn't work so well.... (we waited till it was cooled off of course).... A few people also said to put stickers of their names down first or of your favorite sayings.... such a cute idea!!!

And here's one last picture that Phoenix too for you :)

Hope you like this fun DIY project!!! If you do decide to do it.... Please share! I would love to see how yours turns out. The fun part about this is that every single one you do is unique and you can't really mess up because it's how you want it to turn out ;)

Thanks so much for reading/watching!
