Crayon Wreath Tutorial

Being that two out of the five total people in my immediate family are elementary teachers, seeing cute teacher crafts on Pinterest gets me all a-twitter. I’ve seen crayon wreaths a few times and as I happen to love wreaths (and now love making them too) I got too excited not to make one. My sister is about to end her maternity leave so I figured this would be a fun time to give it to her (really, any excuse would have worked).

For this you’ll need:

Center the smaller hoop inside the larger. When I did this, I only used the inner hoop from each one to make it less clunky, but I think I would recommend using the whole hoop.

IMPORTANT! Lay out all the crayons before you start gluing. It will take you a bit longer but trust me, it’s worth it. They probably won’t fit exactly how you think they will in the beginning. Other than that, it’s as simple as gluing them down.

I ran a ribbon through the hoop where I wanted my top to be  and hot glued a bow on the front. (I used this trick to tie the bow.)

That’s it! You’ve now got a crayon wreath. Be gentle with it until it’s hung up, as crayons will come loose. All you have to do is glue them back into place but it can still become a pain if you’re not careful.

If you liked this tutorial or have any questions, let me know!
