This year for Emily's teacher's Christmas gift I made a crayon wreath. I also made one for my mother who is an art teacher.
These were a bit time-consuming. I made them in September though so I'd have plenty of time if I messed up. I do plan ahead for mess-ups. :)
I had to use an enormous amount of crayons. Luckily I got a good bit of them on sale. But even then, it was not very expensive. I bought the embellishments at Michaels.
There are various ways to make this. I've seen all kinds of different ones on Pinterest. Just do a search for "crayon wreaths." Some are thinner than these if you do not want to use as many crayons.
When I finished I wasn't too sure if I liked them. But when I pulled them out of the closet this week I realized these were probably my favorite projects to complete this year.
Emily decided to draw me a present. Fantastic! Except she's kept it in her closet and for some reason she put it under the tree last night and told me not to look under the tree. How am I going to not look under the tree when I have to get the presents to give away? She thought she could disguise the present using her Barbie case and Barbies.
She decided to place her two princess ornaments on our Frozen-themed tree. Super! Except one broke and for some reason she has kept Belle's decapitated head.
