HANDMADE GIFTS / TODDLER CRAFTS

I don’t know where the summer break went.  It feels like the summer just started. The first day of school came up so fast that I did not really have a chance to make any special crafts for this year’s teachers.  So far, we have only brought the teacher’s flowers.  Our main teacher loves DIY projects. I have been wanting to make this wreath for her since the first day of school.

Supplies Needed to Make DIY Crayon Wreath

  • 9″ Biodegradable Floral Craft Ring
  • All Purpose Tacky Glue
  • 65 Crayons
  • Ribbon
  • Accessories

How to Make DIY Crayon Wreath

  • Determine your pattern.  I debated about either doing an alternating rainbow pattern or color coded with sections of the same colors.
  • Apply the tacky glue.  I originally applied the glue to each crayon, then I moved to doing large sections of the ring in glue so that I could adjust the crayons as needed.
  • Glue the ribbon at the top of the wreath.
  • Add your accessories.  I did a small sign that I printed on the computer and glued to a piece of cardboard.  I accented it with crayons

Pro Tip: Use tacky glue so you can adjust them as needed.  Line up the end of the crayon with the curve of the inner section of the craft ring.

The ironic part is as soon as B saw what I was working on she asked if I could make it for her room first!  So, it looks like the wreath for her teacher is going to have to wait again.  I was so excited to pick B up from school so she could enjoy your afternoon snack and her surprise of the wreath on her door.  Her reaction was priceless.  She also loves the Tampico fruit punch.  No surprise to hear it was one of my hubby’s favorites as a child.  And how cute are these cookies from The Princess Baker!
