Thrift Thursday: Crayon Monogram

After finding this classroom decoration on Pinterest, I had to give it a try. I'm nothing short of obsessed when it comes to monogramming; and a chance to add my monogram to my classroom was a must have. This is the simplest of craft projects and can be completed for a very wallet friendly price.

Materials I used: 
picture frame without the glass (or shadow box), white scrap book paper, 2-3 boxes of crayons, hot glue gun, letter template, thin point Sharpie marker

How I did it:
Trace the backing of your picture frame onto the white scrap book paper. Cut out this outline from the scrap book paper so that it can fit into the frame. Glue white paper to cardboard backing.

Trace letter template onto the white paper.

Lay crayons on the template and mark where they need to be broken. Break or cut crayons to fit the letter template. Place crayons so that they cover the entire letter outline and rotate your colors to look cohesive.

Hot glue each crayon pieces.

Add your name with the Sharpie marker to complete the project.

Finally hang your masterpiece up to be admired by all!
