I had an empty space high on my wall, so I bought a large canvas and a box of 120 crayons. I picked out colors to use and arranged them how I wanted - I'm a big fan of Roy G Biv, so that's what I went with.
I hot glued the crayons to the top edge of the canvas. I wanted the names to be showing instead of the Crayola logo, because some of these had great names: purple heart, outer space, wild blue yonder, screaming' green, inchworm, unmellow yellow, macaroni and cheese, razzamatazz, jazzberry jam.
I let the glue dry overnight just to be safe, then turned on the hair dryer the next morning to melt some wax. I had the windows open because it was a beautiful day and I figured the breeze would only help dry the colored drizzles. I didn't count on the hair dryer, on its highest level to produce some intense heat, blowing wax all around. You may think you pushed your furniture out of the way enough, but push it back some more.
Luckily I could scrape the dried wax off my dining room chair and hardwood floors,
and I had been worried this rug was too dark for my style, anyway…
I'm pretty fond of my finished product.
I wanted something to break up all the white space of my wall triangle, but not
something that required close inspection to appreciate - just a burst of color.
