1st Day of School Crayon Wreath

I wanted to make decorations for the back to school lunch and so I made these VERY EASY wreaths.

I used the middles of 2 embroidery hoops. The big one is 12 inches and the small one is 8 inches.

I used almost all of the 64 pack of crayons to hot glue around the hoops.

I used LOCKER TALK to cut out the scissors at 5 inches and then embossed the bottom of them with silver embossing powder.

I used my black cricut marker to draw my ruler at 3 inches. Then I changed back to my blade and cut out the ruler.

I used the marker again to draw the Report card at 5 inches and then cut it out.
A+ was cut at 1 inch

The word "Trajan" (my children's school) was cut using All Mixed Up with the Design Studio software so I could weld parts of the word and make it smaller than 1 inch.

"Elementary"is Alphalicious.

The apple was cut out with Doodlecharms at 2 1/2 inches.
I glued the things that I had cut onto the wreath and added some curling ribbon and glued the scissors on top of that. You could put your child's teachers name on it instead of the schools name for a really cute 1st day of school gift. I usually give these to my kids teachers at the end of the year but I was not prepared last year so I am doing it now... Better late then never right?
