As you might recall, my little 3 year old started pre-school last week (see her first day here). She’s going three days a week at a neighbor’s house and loving every minute of it! I thought I would do something special for her home classroom and kept seeing some neat school wreaths on Pinterest. LOVE that idea!
Cute huh? Here’s how I made the personalized teacher classroom wreath!
- 12 inch floral craft ring
- 2 boxes of crayons
- mini chalkboard
- 2 craft wood apples
- smaller craft wood decals
- hot glue gun
- Thickers stickers
First thing I did was practice laying out my crayons to get the right feel of the wreath. I only used 2 boxes in my wreath instead of the 3 I originally purchased. I decided to use the crayons in a spectrum from red to purple and discarded the other colors.
For the empty spaces near the purple crayons and chalkboard, I used the large craft wood apples and glued them into place. I used the smaller craft wooden pieces such as pencils and a schoolhouse to decorate the rest of the chalkboard. I purchased a large red and white polka dot wire ribbon from Michael’s with a 40% off coupon for the top of the wreath (originally $7).
