I Finally Made a Crayon Wreath!!

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

It's that time again, Monday Made It!!!



I'm linking up with Tara today, to show you guys what I made!

Now those of you who know me, I'm not really 100% crafty,

I just like to think I am, lol!!!!



For the past few years, I've seen pictures floating around of crayon wreaths.

I've been wanting to make one forever, I just haven't made the time to do so.

So, I decided that now was the time!


First, I started by "glittering" my letter that I wanted to use on the wreath,

especially since I knew it would need time to dry.



To get started with the wreath, you will need two embroidery hoops,

one big and a smaller one as well. The size really doesn't matter,

as long as you have big and small. The pink one in the picture is 10"

and the yellow one is 6".

I used a 96 pack of crayons, but I only ended up using about 50 crayons. 


When I started the wreath, I thought about just pulling crayons out of the box,

and gluing them down in whatever order.

Buuuuuttttt.......then I thought better of it, and decided to group by color. 


So, it was hot glue time!! Before I made anything permanent, I played with placing

a few crayons around, just to see what I wanted my starting and stopping points to be,

such as how far down I wanted my crayon on the yellow hoop, and how far

I wanted the point sticking up over the pink hoop. 

After that, it's just place crayon, glue and then repeat!!


Towards the end, I tried to see how much space I had, and if I would have 

enough room to use the colors that I'd picked out. 

Looks good from here!!


I decided to layer my ribbons, which I did with hot glue. 


And voila!!! 


Totally nailed it, lol!!!

Talk to you guys later!!
