I saw this idea somewhere on Pinterest and thought it would make a cute teacher’s gift for an elmentary school teacher.  The crayons on the original post were put on the wreath with hot glue.  I try to avoid hot glue at all costs.  I probably just need a new hot glue gun (mine is from the 90s), but I hate using the stuff.  I figured I could just use floral pins for the crayons.  And if you wanted to, you could remove the crayons  and use them!  You could also do this with pencils for a teacher and the class could use the pencils throughout the year.  The wreath pictured is just crayons and wreath.  But you could wrap the wreath in ribbon first and add a bow to the wreath to make it prettier.

My total cost for this wreath was about $3.00.   This is a great time of year to pick up cheap crayons for crafts.  I used crayons that were $.25/box, but I’ve picked them up for as low as $.01/box making this a very affordable project.

Materials needed:

  • 1 12″ plastic wrapped wreath -  $1.80 (with coupon)
  • 1 bag floral pins -  $.50
  • 2.5, 25 count boxes of crayons – $.63

Directions: Pin the crayons to the wreath! I turned the words on the crayons inward so you can’t see them:

    Of course you would make this now. I just picked up 10 boxes of crayons this past weekend for a crayon craft. New crayons are simply the BEST part of school. :)


  1. [...] Growing Up Gabel has a tutorial for a clever crayon wreath. Since I coordinated the class holiday gift last year, I can’t help thinking that something like this would be perfect in December too. [...]
