seasonally challenged

I've decided that I am seasonally challenged. I don't necessarily craft for the season I am. So here is one for anyone who wants a craft to do on St Patrick's day.

I love C's leprechaun. It is adorable, don't you think?

This is a mixed media piece that includes melted crayons. This will probably be our last melted crayon piece for awhile. In order to slightly contain the spill of the rainbow, I masked off the rest of the picture with removable contact paper. As you can tell there was still seepage, I didn't mind that as long as the basic idea of a rainbow stayed intact.

We used cotton for the clouds and gold buttons for the pile of gold. The girls drew their leprechauns separately, cut them out and then glued them to their picture.

I love the intense color of melted crayons!!

Just in case you think we don't know Roy G. Biv and the colors of the rainbow we do. However, the colors blue, indigo, and violet are too hard to do well with crayons so we did blue, pink, and violet just to make the colors look nicer.


  1. You are the coolest Crafty Mom! LOVE these...actually, I love every craft you post. LOL Great job on these. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Haha!! You crack me up. You are totally seasonally challenged. Snowmen in July, and leprechauns in Oct. You are confusing your kids!! haha!! Love the art work though, your girls are as creative as you! :)

  3. You and the girls have been working on such amazing project with the melted crayons. This is so fun, I never thought to use brass buttons as gold coin treasure, very, very clever.
