Quick project---Crayon Wreath

Good morning...the morning fog is finally lifting and it is time to share a quick project I made!  I am a teacher, so I made this to hang on my classroom door.  My teacher friends at school all LOVE it, so I wish I had saved it for an end of the year gift for my daughter's teacher.
By no means did I come up with the idea for this project on my own.  I first saw it on PINTEREST, which is a fabulous site for getting crafty ideas.
What I really love?  It cost me almost nothing to make...Crayons were $.15 a box, and I used three.  I already had the burlap, and I also had the wire wreath form for years, but if you had to buy it, I think they are around three or four dollars.
First, I covered the wire wreath form with burlap and hot glue. 
Then, you begin to fill in with crayons  ON THE FLAT SIDE of the wreath (and hot glue, of course!)
More crayons...goes pretty quickly actually!
And voila, a beautiful wreath...

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!
