This year, the Melted Crayon Canvas Art went viral all over the blog world and Pinterest, and we had made our own in the Fall. Lately, Butterfly has been into antlers, learning about the uses of antlers on deer, reindeer and moose, and wanting to watch deer fight with their antlers on Youtube. So I thought I'd use the melted crayon art to make a whole different piece of art for Christmas time. The melted crayons will be Rudolph's antlers!
I started off with a canvas, hot glue gun, hair dryer, brown crayons, a brown foam cut out of Rudolph's head, googly eyes, and a big red pom pom nose!
I hot glued the items to the canvas.
Then I turned Rudolph upside down!
Over a tray, with the hair dryer on hot, I got to work making Butterfly some exquisite antlers!
With this art piece I got to move the canvas around to control the flow of wax! I controlled which antler side I was heating up and then twisted and moved the canvas at different angles, still keeping it upside down, to form spread out waxed antlers!
How cool is that!! It looks so funky!
I added some Christmas decorations for Rudolph and hung jingle bells from his superior antlers!
Here it is near our original Melted Crayon Art.
Butterfly has decided to decorate her play room area and have it on her new kitchen, to decorate "her home" for the holidays! :)
