crayon wreath {teacher gift}

i saw a picture of this idea on flickr.
so cute, right?!
and i needed a teacher gift last Friday for Coop's teacher's birthday.
lucky for me i had everything on hand... including boxes and boxes of crayons.

i started by spraying painting the embroidery hoops black.
once dry i placed the small one inside the large one and started hot gluing crayons to the hoops. a little tricky to keep them all straight and in a circle.
but it worked.
then i tied ribbon around two crayons in the center and made a bow.
and added another long ribbon tied at the top into a bow for hanging.
i used my cricut to cut out the teacher's name.

mrs. grim loved it. score!

my first teacher gift was a success. cooper told her when she unwrapped it "my mommy made it."
