My Stab at a Crayon Wreath

 

 

‘Tis the season for making homemade Christmas gifts.   This past fall I saw these done and decided that I wanted to do this for my daughter’s teacher.  She is a pre-k teacher that is just amazing. I adore her and will be sad to say goodbye this year.   She has a time during her class where she does neat science experiments for the kiddos and when the experiment is done she always says, “That’s science friends!”.  I wanted to incorporate that into the project as well.

It was a bit more labor intensive than I expected and what I used was a wire wreath and flipped it over and placed a glass bowl in the middle to line up the crayons perfectly.  I then hot glued the crayons to the wire . . . that was a bit tricky, but I figured it out.

I have one more to make and I will take pics along the way to the steps I did so you can see how it was done and the recipe next week.  

Thanks for sharing a bit of “spreading the Christmas cheer” pie with me.
