DIY: Melted Crayon Artwork!

I'm going to show you all how to make melted crayon artwork!

To make this you will need:

  • Art Canvas
  • Crayons
  • Blow Dryer
  • Hot Glue Gun
1. Heat up your glue gun and glue down your crayons on the top of your canvas starting from left to right. You can use any colour crayons and you can place them in any order. I like to do them from lightest to darkest.

2. Turn your blow dryer on medium - high heat and hold your crayon canvas at a 45 angle. Then BLOW it!

3. Continue blow drying it until you get your desired effect.

4. Once you are done place the canvas down flat and let it dry.

That's it!

The great thing with this art is that if you're not happy with the final product you can use your blow dryer AGAIN and melt it cause' it's only wax!

DIY: Bow Clips!

Yo, yo, yo!
Today as you can tell from the title, I'm going to show you all how to make DIY Bow Hair Clips...
TRUST ME, anyone can make them cause' it's that simple!

Here's a picture:
To make them you will need:
  • Fabric (an old t-shirt will work for this)
  • Scissors
  • Double Sided Sticky Tape
  • Hair Clips
1. Start of by choosing your fabric. Then fold it over and cut it.
    Tip: Cut your fabric about ½ inch bigger than what you really want

2. Next cut the fabric to your size, cause' you know we obviously don't want a bow that's like HUGE!

3. Now use your double sided sticky tape and stick the edges layers together.

4. Take both ends of the fabric and fold it into the centre then stick it down with the tape.

5. Cut out a small, thin strip of the same fabric and put some tape on the back of it and peel the backing,
    cause' we wanna get it ready!

6. Pinch the centre together and get the small, thin strip and wrap it around the fold.

7. You're almost done, all you've got to do now is just take the clip and tape it down and VOILA, your done!

Ciao!
