The gift I made today is bright and cheerful and very useful! (A supply list and directions are included under the picture). As you can see I use mine to keep my Prisma Colour pencils in. I have one friend who uses her's for stickers and another keeps it on her desk for mints. I get requests for them often, as many of my friends are teachers, lol.
Thanks for stopping by and if you decided to make one and post it leave me a link. I would love to see it!
I am your last stop on the hop today thanks for spending time with us and commenting along the way! (if you got side tracked I have included the line up at the end of this post).
Supply list and Directions
A glass jar (I found that the hot glue didn't stick well to the plastic one I tried)
Enough crayons to go around the jar with no gaps
(I can't give you an exact number because this will depend on your size of jar)
Hot glue gun
yup that's it :)
Okay so first get that gun heated up and put a strip of glue on each crayon and stick it to the jar.
Go all the way around and try really hard to line them up straight (I use the base of the jar as my judge)
Once all the crayons are on then wrap it with ribbon and tie a bow. I always then put a little dab of glue behind each bump on the bow so it doesn't flop over time and a couple dabs on the inside of the ribbon around the jar so that it doesn't shift later.
