We already know that crayons have the ability to tap into your imagination. When I was a kid (and even now), I would spend hours coloring with crayons. My sister and I had a stack of much-loved coloring books, and when we didn’t feel like coloring in the lines, we would break out some blank paper and draw our own little worlds and stories. So many people grew up with crayons and remember how much fun it was to create with them, which is why they’re still so popular today.
The good news is that just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean that your time with crayons is over. Many parents still color with their kids, or they have even jumped on the adult coloring book trend and rekindled their own love of coloring. There are also some pretty cool DIYs out there that use crayons in ways you would have never expected.
Peter Brown is one of those DIYers who decided to push the limits of what you can do with crayons. He melted about 256 crayons and took the colorful mixture to his workshop. When the crayons had cooled and hardened, Peter got to work, shaping the block into a colorful vase. You would need some knowledge of tools to make this project on your own, but if nothing else, this video is mesmerizing to watch. It’s not every day that you get to see 256 crayons shaped by construction tools. Get inspired by this unique project and then try some crayon DIYs of your own!
