Thank You Mrs.Gallo!

This is the Thank You gift I made for Rhys' teacher Mrs.Gallo. I had been seeing a lot of this art on Pinterest and thought it was perfect for a J.K teacher. I started with a large white canvas I purchased at Micheal's. I then cut my letters out of some Contact Paper, the stuff you line shelves with, using my Gypsy and Cricut. I then used 6 boxes of Crayola Crayons and layed out my rainbow pattern. When I was happy I hot glued them in place.Then came the most time consuming part, melting the crayons. I used a heat gun and very slowly heated my crayons letting them run down the canvas. I worked at it very slowly to get a nice colour pattern to make sure all my letters were well covered. When I was happy I then very lightly heated where the letters were an gently pulled them off. I am very happy with how it turned out and so was Mrs.Gallo. She phoned me at home to personally thank me for the gift. I was very touched!



  1. So pretty!!! I've got to try that!!!

  2. Wow, this is fantastic! Love how it turned out. It totally looks like you added the letters on top! I'm sure the teacher did love it!
