So I picked up this crayon wreath flyer at Hobby Lobby about a year ago. http://www.hobbylobby.com/assets/pdf/project_inspiration/projects/HL-209.pdf I bought the supplies then, but I'm just now getting to making it. It will be a cute addition to my classroom. For starters, I had to get rid of the ribbon slip knot thing! I figured out how to make the ribbon slip knot, but could not figure out how to apply it to the hoop. The directions do not give any indication on how to either, so I just glued my crayons down with hot glue.
- 1 -8" embroidery hoop
- 1 -12" embroidery hoop
- 3 boxes of 24 ct. crayons
- 1 roll of 3/8" craft ribbon
- 1 wide ribbon piece for the hanger I used SU! 1 1/4" stripped grosgrain ribbon in Old Olive (item # 115618)
- various die cuts (I used all SU! paper and the Cricut Locker Talk & Doodlecharm cartridge)
- acrylic paint (to paint the hoops) and a sponge brush
- hot glue gun (I used high temp) and glue sticks
- Wooden apple cut out
- paint pens (for name)
- unscrew the screw from both hoops and hot glue the ends together
- paint the hoops desired color
- lay all crayons on the hoop in the desired color order. This helps with placement when you begin to glue them all down.
- glue down each crayon. If you are a perfectionist like me, make sure that all crayons are facing the same way.
- Thread craft ribbon in and out at the top of crayons and again at the bottom. I tied my knot behind the crayon to keep the ribbon tight.
- Attach die cuts with hot glue. I laminated mine first to help them last longer.
- Tie large bow at the top making sure you leave a long enough loop to hang the wreath. You can add hot glue for reinforcement on the hoop.
If you have any questions, please let me know! Thanks for looking!
