Back to School Crayon Wreath!


This was so amazingly easy to make.  We took it to the school office for them to hang on the door yesterday and they were so excited to have a new decoration to kick the school year off!

Supplies Used:

  • 12 inch Styrofoam wreath 
  • 3 packs of crayons (24 ct)
  • Red Ribbon 1 5/8 inches wide (needed 2 spools)
  • Back to School Stickers - your choice
  • Glue Gun

Start by securing the red ribbon on the back of the wreath and wrap around and around, covering the green wreath.

Arrange your crayons in the order you want them glued to wreath as this part will go fast.  On the wreath (for a section as big as you want) add glue and crayons right away.  Remember when using a glue gun, the glue is HOT and dries very quickly.


Once crayons are glued on, use the glue gun to adhere your stickers randomly around the wreath.

Once the stickers are glued on, I made a single bow (like tying a shoe) out of the Red Ribbon and glued to the bottom of the wreath.

That is it - all done and ready to go.  I wish I had time to make one for each teacher too, but with school starting Tuesday and my "to do" way too long....it's not going to happen!

I am so thankful school is starting soon!  Fall is coming soon....my favorite time of year!
