DIY Dorm Decoration: Melted Crayons (With a Twist)

Are you looking for a fun and inexpensive way to add decoration to your dorm room?  I found this awesome twist on everyone’s favorite DIY craft — melted crayons!   Since we’re all under the constraints of a strict college student’s budget, this project is perfect.  All you need is a box of crayons, a canvas, a fork and a hair dryer.

First, lay out some newspaper under the canvas.  Once you’ve unpeeled a crayon, break it in half and stab it with the fork.  Turn the hair dryer on and get started!

When blow-drying the crayons, twist the fork for a unique smudging effect!   This allows you to blend the colors together.

And voila! You have a brand new dorm decoration that looks like it belongs in an art
