Fabric Crayon Artwork with Kids

Have you tried fabric crayons?  Here’s a fun project to do with the kids that has abundant ways to be creative.  We made a round table runner decorated with artwork for our project.

Here’s what you’ll need to do your own fabric crayon artwork:

Crayon 3

To begin, prepare your fabric by cutting it to size.  Next, have the children use the crayons to make drawings on the plain white paper.

Remember, you will be ironing these works of art face down, so they will be mirror images of the original; any text needs to be written mirrored.  Be sure to have the kids color firmly, not ridiculously hard, but not just lightly sketching either.  Blow off any crumbs.

Position the artwork face down on the fabric, and iron according to the directions on the fabric crayon package.

Crayon 6

Using your fabric glue, glue the pom-pom trim around the edge of your table runner.  Let dry.

We chose to make a round runner for our coffee table, but you could make a square, or long rectangle, or even a whole table cloth.  How fun would it be to make a holiday tablecloth and napkins?  What about an apron and tea towels for a gift?  Or have the kids make their own t-shirts or pillowcases?  There are so many fun ways you could use fabric crayon art!
