All this requires is a blank canvas, a pack of crayons, and a hairdryer! The hair dryer melts the candle wax into beautiful, colorful streaks and you can turn it into a multitude of different designs. Here is an awesome tutorial for a basic crayon art masterpiece!

Magazine Collage

Do you have a ton of magazines lying around that have already been read but need to be recycled? Turn them into art! Nothing looks simpler, but more chic, than a homemade collage of beautiful clips from glossy magazines. Try a theme, like fashion inspiration, or just tape up what looks artsy to you. Only tape required!

Chalk Art

So, if you’re anything like me, your chalk art wouldn’t be quite as amazing as this… but that’s the beauty of chalk art! Chalk is extremely inexpensive and you can be as creative and messy as you want because it simply washes away with a spray of water. You can recreate your work over and over again!
