crayon wreath

Can you tell I’m thinking about back to school? Here’s another amazing teacher’s gift idea from A Bushel and A Peck: a pretty multicolored crayon wreath! I love the way the crayons are arranged by color, but I bet it would look neat if all the crayons were mixed up, or if all the crayons were in the same color family. Take advantage of back-t0-school sales to pick up crayons for a great price, or find everyday great prices on crayons at your dollar store. [how to make a crayon wreath] [via Cara TX]

The inspiration project uses two embroidery hoops as a form, but you could use a wreath you find at the dollar store, or cut out a cardboard circle and cover it with pretty ribbon, fabric, or paper before you glue the crayons on.

Project Estimate:

  • Wreath form, on hand or $1
  • Large box of crayons or 3 boxes of 24, $1 and up
  • Glue, on hand
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1

Total: $1 and up
