Fall Wax Canvas Art Tutorial
I’ve been thinking of some new fall crafts to do. I like to make at least one new decoration for each season/holiday every year. Here is a quick little tutorial on the first crafty decoration I came up with.
- Canvas / frame
- Crayons in color(s) of your choice, wrappers removed.
- Freezer paper
- Template shape of your choice (I found the one I used here)
Take your freezer paper and tape it to your table, shiny side up. Cut a piece of canvas a few inches bigger than your frame and tape it over top the freezer paper. This way your canvas won’t stick and your table is protected. Cut out and then trace your template on the middle of your canvas.
Using your candle melt the end of your crayon. Please excuse my flesh wound. I burned myself ironing. 🙂
Press the unsharpened end (the wrong end) of your crayon to your canvas somewhere inside your template making a small dot. Be careful not to drip or splatter on your canvas. Keeping a plate under my candle helped this so I could move it around to avoid hauling my crayon long distances. Continue this step until the inside of your shape is filled.
I may have used a few too many colors. I’d like to make a second one (maybe our last name initial) in multiple shades of the same color. If anyone does this, please share!
