School Time

Well it is official, school is coming whether we want it to or not. And my wreath obsession is just continuing! Since it is almost the start of a new year I decided that I was in need of a new fall wreath, something that went with back to school!
Well if you're crafty then you know where to head for some inspiration...Pinterest!
I found a lot of options, but decided a crayon wreath was the way to go. So here is how I got started:

  • wreath form
  • fabric strips
  • hot glue gun and glue
  • crayons, I used 3 boxes for a 10"
  • ribbon

1.  To begin wrap your wreath with the fabric strips. I used some red gingim and used 4 strips about 1 1/2" wide.

2.  Next I set up my crayons in the order I wanted them glued on. Just to make sure I had the right amount as well as a good mix of the colors. I took out the black, brown, and white just because I wanted it to stay colorful.
3.  Next I glued the crayons to my wreath form.
4.  Finally I added ribbon to the top to hang it by and then put it on door. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
