Make a cute Pencil Wreath for a teacher gift for under $5 with your child.
Added bonus: Your teacher will always have an extra pencil handy.
- $1 grape vine wreath
- 40 Pencils ($1 per pack of ten) = $4
- glue gun
I started by trimming all of the excess curls and messy branches off of the grapevine wreath to give it a clean look. You could leave these for a more rustic look. We used all yellow pencils because we wanted an old school look, but I think the multicolored pencils would be cute too.
Next I started hot gluing pencils onto the wreath. I clustered the pencils into groups and then just worked my way around the wreath.
When I got back around to the beginning (or end if you look at it that way). I just tucked and wove the pencils into the groups of pencils that were already attached.
To finish it off I wove some rick rack ribbon around the wreath, gluing in strategic places to keep it attached.
So for a total of $5 and about 20 minutes, we have a great gift that my daughter is really proud to have helped make for her teacher.
