Mini crayon canvas

My beautiful niece, Jess, stayed with me last night-so this morning I surprised her with a mini crayon canvas.  I waited until she was up to melt the crayons, because I thought she'd like to see the melting action.

I spray painted a thrifted 8 x 10 Home Interior canvas that I got at Goodwill for 15 cents awhile ago.   My stash of Crayolas was almost gone!

She was thrilled with the finished product!

Then tonight, my beautiful daughter dropped in with some 11 x 14 canvases (not really big enough to do a heart on-so we just went along the top with this one too) and crayons.  She thought an umbrella under the melted crayons would look cute and I agree!  I'm not sure if she's keeping this one or is giving it to a friend.

  I have a feeling I'm going to have melted crayons on the brain soon!
