Back to School Wreath Directions:
- To make a Back to School Wreath you will first need to unpack your crayons.
- Add some liquid glue onto a portion of one side of the wooden wreath frame.
- Add some hot glue to the same portion and press the crayons one by one next to each other to secure them onto the frame. Take care to glue them in a uniform matter and try not to use same colored crayons next to each other. Let the glue dry completely.
- Arrange the decorations over the crayons and once you have found the best places for them, glue them onto the crayons using liquid glue and hot glue.
- Add a ribbon for hanging. Done!
Make good use of a back to school sale in your area:
To keep the expenses for making this cute wreath low, try to find back to school supplies at your local stores. They often offer 2-for-1 deals, or “BOGO” – buy one get one free deals. Back to school season is perfect for stocking up on wreath materials!
Where to search for wreath materials:
Making wreaths often require some special wreath materials, which are really easy to find in hobby stores or the craft area of your local big box store. Online shops are a great source for such wreath materials, too.
Creative teachers gifts ideas:
Giving a thoughtful gift to a teacher is a way to give something back to someone who is such an important person in every kid’s life. Making a gift by yourself adds even more to it, since it really shows your appreciation. Use items that are practical for a teacher to use or that will remind them of their students or efforts to show them how important they are.
We love these teachers gift ideas from our Burlap and Succulents shop:

Add some fun elements like ABC blocks to complete the academic look and the wreath will be for sure a favorite item for any teacher to have.

I love this crayon wreath… so adorable! I’ve picked it as one of my Back-to-school project features in this week’s Monday Funday party. Thank you so much for sharing!
Very cute idea! I’m a High School teacher and I am feeling a little bit jealous this time of year seeing all the cute things that are gifted to Elementary School teachers! lol, this is adorable though!
