Crayon Wreath

It has been soooo long since I posted anything. I haven't gotten much time in to craft and the few things I have created have been quick cards for birthdays or sympathy, and I am always in such a hurry that I forget to snap the picture!
My oldest started Kindergarten last week! It has been very emotional for me but he is doing great and loves it! I wanted to make his teacher something for the first day of school, and as is my habit, I waited until Sunday night to start. I laid out and glued all of the crayons on two sewing rings - a 6 and an 8 inch ring. When I did this last year for the preschool teachers I used one circle from each ring but this year I decided to use both for more stability. Monday evening - yes the night before it needed to be done - I wound the ribbon between the crayons and made my cricut cuts and adhered them to the wreath. I also threw together a quick card and packed it all up for Alex to surprise his teacher with!

Suuplies: 2 24-count Crayola Crayons. 2 sewing rings, 6inch and 8 inch. Ribbon; Walmart. Brads; Making Memories. Vinyl; Oh My Crafts. Cartridges used: Pooh Font, Pooh and Friends (frame on chalkboard), CCR Basics and Create a Critter for the card. Stickers; Mambi (I think).

This wreath is super easy to make and so cute, and would also work well with colored pencils for Junior High or High School teachers. I got the idea from a blog hop last year, but I can't remember who's blog it was and wasn't able to find it again.
