Teacher Appreciation Week

This week I am going to be showing projects for Teacher Appreciation week.  I will be appearing on Fox 9 http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/ Saturday, May 5th at 7:30 a.m. showing all these ideas and more!
Today I am going to be making a crayon wreath.  This is such a fun project, and would be so cute in your child's classroom.  Start with a wreath form and a whole bunch of new crayons.

Just start gluing those crayons on the wreath form.  I started with E6000 but ended up using hot glue.  It takes awhile... have your child sort out the crayons for you to glue on.

When I was finished I made ribbon rosettes to decorate the wreath.  I used 2 inch wide wire ribbon... All you do is knot the end and twist the ribbon as you make a circle.  I've been wanting to try these for so long and they are soooo easy.

I added them to my wreath with hot glue, and a button in the middle of each.

You probably wouldn't want to hang this up outside, but it would look awfully cute in a school or a craft room.  Come back tomorrow to see another fun idea!


  1. the ribbons, the flowers, the buttons: adorbs!

  2. Jenni that is so cute! Would make a great gift to a teacher, even at Christmas!

  3. Congratulations, Jenni, on your spot on Fox 9 and the Washington Post! How cool is that! Keep it up!
