One of my favorite things about the beginning of the end of summer, is all the deals and sales on back to school supplies! I adore stocking on everything I could possibly need for the rest of the year and coming up with fun and creative ideas. Like this fun Back to School Crayon Wreath!

Here’s what you need to make your Back to School Crayon Wreath:

Need: ~1Dollar store “splatter guard”  ~3Box crayons ~Hot glue/gun ~Pencils, scissors, glue sticks or other school items to decorate  Directions: Start off by removing handle from lid. Then place lid on foil. Using hot glue gun glue crayons around edge. Place the crayon about 1/3 of the way off the lid. Continue in a circle. Once all crayons are secured flip everything over. Peel off the foil and run a thick layer of hot glue around the base of the crayons. The handle to the lid works great to press the glue thru the mesh to secure the crayons well. Once dry flip back over and use sharp scissors to cut the mesh from the center. Then add decorations.

    Using a splatter guard us borderline genius! GREAT tip! And the colors in order soothe my OCD soul! lol

  2. Heather @ Designed to Thrive says:

    I totally love this! This might be a good teacher gift at some point. I’ll definitely be pinning this. My son is entering kindergarten, so I’m sure there will be teacher appreciation weeks and I think this might be a good thing to give (instead of random things from Bath & Body Works!). Thanks for sharing!
