I found a lovely wreath one day on Fancy Frugal Life and immediately thought of my sister. She teaches first grade and I knew she would love a wreath for her classroom. I basically followed the tutorial, however, I did make a few changes. I did not cut the pencils. Also I purchased two MDF rings which I found in the floral section of Michael's. I used Sobo craft glue to adhere the pencils to one of the rings. Then I used wood glue to adhere the second ring, sandwiching the pencils between the two. I hoped this would hold well, make the wreath sturdier, and make it easier to hang. I glued the crayons on the second ring again using Sobo craft glue. I decided to keep with the pretty sunburst pattern. I found all of my craft supplies at Michael's. This was fun to make. My sister loved it! I want to thank Fancy Frugal Life for this fantastic idea!
