I had some crazy idea to make a Christmas gift for my daughter's teacher. I've never made anything like this before so I wasn't sure if it would even turn out. Well, it did! And, it was super easy - much easier than it looks.
Box of 24 crayons (I bought one of the huge box of about a zillion crayons thinking I'd need them all. Nope, 24 would have been fine.)
I finished it in about two hours - I thought it would take a lot longer.
After attempting to print an outline of a large letter "E", I gave up and decided to draw it freehand. It was a lot easier that way.
I lightly outlined an "E" with pencil and then arranged several crayons horizontally to make sure the height of letter was about right.
Then, I started cutting and gluing the crayons to the paper.
Once finished, I gathered up the colorful shavings left over and glued them to the border of the name plate at the bottom.
I was very happy with how this turned out - It was inexpensive and fun to make.
But, best of all... Ms. "E" was very happy with her special Christmas gift!
I'm thinking this would be cute in a kid's room or playroom too.
