In honor of teacher appreciation week and the school year coming to an end, I’m sharing the crayon monogram I made for Cassie’s classroom a few years. I got the idea from, you guessed it, Pinterest and went to work. This is such an easy craft to make for your child’s teacher or your teacher friends.
- Two boxes of 64 count Crayola crayons
- Scrapbook paper
- Shadow box frame
- Print out of your letter
The first thing I did was print out the letter ‘S’ in a font that I liked and in the size that I wanted the monogram to be. Then I put the colors I wanted in ‘ROYGBIV’ order. I cut the colors with a knife, I just wish I would have done a neater job getting the extra paper off of each crayon. The best part of having two boxes of crayons, even though I didn’t need both, was if I messed up cutting a crayon I had the same one to replace from the other box. If you just get one box you can just use another color that’s close.
I hot glued the crayons to the scrapbook paper, which had little specks of color that looked like crayon marks. Then I used my favorite font ‘Harrington’ and spelled out Cassie’s last name.
I thought something was missing so I used my circuit to cut out the designs on the blue paper.
I found the frame in Michaels and love the way it looks like it has matting around the monogram.
I love how this turned out and it was so easy!! What other teacher appreciation gifts have you done?
