STEPS TO MAKE A COLORFUL FALL TREE USING CRAYON SHAVINGS:

  • Start with drawing an image of tree and branches, color the tree using a black marker.

  • Grab some of your fall colored crayons, peel the cover off, sharpen them and pile up the shavings. Using the sharpener, shave down unwrapped Crayola crayons to create crayon shavings in the desired colors to create your picture. 

Next sprinkles crayon shavings all over your painting, leave some space around the edges so they don’t run off the canvas paper as they melt.

Gently put a sheet of wax paper over the top of the picture to ensure the shavings are secured in place.

Now set your iron on low, carefully run an iron over the wax paper. The crayon pieces will melt as you go. You should see the crayon shavings on the canvas paper quickly begin to melt and move around the canvas.

Let it cool down, slowly remove the wax paper and your fall tree art is ready. Give the melted crayons 2-3 minutes to cool and you have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork made from crayons!  Super easy! the tree is bursting with vibrant shades of red, yellow, and orange.

Melted crayon art is an easy and fun thing. It’s so simple, yet the end result is a stunning piece of vibrant fall art that you can hang on a wall in your home.

This project makes a wonderful way to talk about how trees transition from summer to fall! I recommend that you hang crayon FALL TREE art masterpiece away from heat sources and in an area where it will not receive bright, direct sunlight.’
