DIY crayon drip art
I'm sure you have seen this craft all over Instagram and Tumblr. It's a great way to flex your creative side without having to have a lot of talent. Here are some step-by-step instructions to get you on your way to making this artsy craft and getting those likes on Instagram and Tumblr when you post a pic of your finished product. This tutorial comes from WikiHow.

Materials

For this project, you will need:
-- A canvas of any size
-- A blowdryer
-- Crayons (Crayola crayons are the best because they have more wax)
-- Hot-glue gun and hot-glue sticks

You can find all of these items at a local arts and crafts store.

Glue the crayons on the canvas

Use the hot-glue gun to glue the crayons onto the canvas. You can arrange the crayons in whatever color order you would like. You can do rainbow or striped — it's completely up to you!

Melt the crayons

Use the hairdryer to melt the crayons. You should move the hairdryer in a downward motion and point the end of the hairdryer towards the tips of the crayons. Move the hairdryer over all of the crayons — don't leave it on one set of crayons for a long period of time.

Let the melted wax dry

Once you are satisfied with the dripped wax design, lay the canvas on a flat surface and let it completely dry.

You now have a creative piece of art!

You can remove the crayons from the top of the canvas if you want.
There are many different designs you can do with this DIY project. Here are just a few ideas to get your mind thinking creatively.

This is so cool!! I love the way the finished product looks. An easy DIY piece to brighten up your bedroom :D
my little sister did one of these and it's actually really cool. I just down own a hairdryer, so I guess I'll wait until I can borrow one to do it myself.
@VinMcCarthy haha yes, I don't think you can justify buying a hairdryer just for this project, but yes they turn out really cool!
@JordanNash lol You're porbably right, couldn't justify that. I guess I'll just wait until I can borrow one.
