Teacher Monogram Wreath & Crayon Chalkboard Sign

Hi Friends! I have two more back to school projects to tell you about today….First I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for your comments and response to this wreath. I appreciate it. My sis in law LOVED it and is going to display it proudly in her first elementary school class!
Also, I was featured in our little local newspaper this past Sunday. I contacted them to see if they wanted any back to school ideas and they sent over a reporter and photographer two days later! It was a nice article you can read here if you’d like. :) 
So here is a back to school monogram I made this weekend for another very special person. I had lots of crayons and pencils left over and used them here. 
I painted the K from Joanne’s craft store blue. Then I added pencils and crayons with hot glue.

I love these little details from Hobby Lobby. I painted a star and added ribbon to make a little award.
My aunt is such a special person to us. Her bravery, joy, and all around positive funny attitude on life is a true inspiration. Not only has she battled MS and recently breast cancer, she is now starting her 20th year of teaching kindergarten at Gilbert Elementary in AZ! She was getting her class ready today and I brought this treat for her :)
 How cute is she?! I think she liked the K for Mrs. Ketron.
So the next project is a cute chalkboard sign I made as a photo prop for the first day of school, but it would make an excellent gift for a teacher too. Maybe a sign for the door.

I found this unfinished sign at Hobby Lobby for around $3. I used some paint for the trim and chalkboard paint for the middle.
 I used a sharpie to make ruler marks on the sign, and hot glued crayons to the back. I also used this clear chalkboard paint coating on the apple. It makes anything a chalkboard. Cool right?
Here’s a practice picture for the real picture next month :-) I know I have back to school on my mind lately!? Do you? Take Care!

  12. Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to make a wreath for a good friend of mine!
    Quick question: How did you secure the ribbon to the back? (I’m afraid the ribbon won’t be able to hold the weight of the wreath if I just glue it onto the wreath.)

    • Hi! the ribbon on my wreath was glued… However when she hung the wreath it was supported by the actual wood wreath not ribbon. And hung on a wall were no one was touching it.Thanks for stopping by!
