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.
- 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:
