What you need:
– orange and yellow crayons (already unwrapped)–Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue
– a hair dryer
– surface cover/poster board
Lay down your surface cover before you begin. First open up the Tacky Glue and squeeze out some around the stem. You may wonder why you need glue...well, if you don't have atleast a little bit of glue, this project will turn into a hot mess and all your crayons will fly all over the place. And let me just say, you don't want melted crayons on your wall or carpet.
Let the glue dry atleast a few minutes before you move onto the next step to secure them in place.
Now turn your hair dryer on low and start melting the crayons. I recommend getting the crayons started on low before you turn it on full blast. When you do turn it on high, the crayons will start melting at a rapid rate...
You can make some of the crayon run down the pumpkin by pointing the blow dryer downward. I think this makes for a cooler, more abstract drip look! Also, it doesn't leave clumps of crayons in some spots and not others.
Until next time Swellions!
