Monday’s Make-it … {diy crayon monograms}

How was ur weekend? Mine included a trip to Mrs. Green’s Natural Market (in keeping with my ‘eating healthier’ this new year) so hubby and I stocked up on several oooh sooo delicious organic foods. Do you drink organic milk? It is + tastes soooo fresh (yum yum yum, slurp!). Ok, onto today’s post …..If you’re a mother with kids attending elementary school, you might come across piles of old crayons sitting around, waiting to be tossed away. But don’t throw them out just yet!!!! Lisa, a mother herself, has created the perfect way to turn old crayons into teachers’ gifts, as featured at her kid-friendly blog, Rainy Tuesday Mornings! Here’s an overview of Lisa’s creation. Gather crayons + glue …









Broken crayons are kind of nostalgic, don’t you think?









8″x8″ shadowboxes make the perfect base!









Use an exacto knife to aid you in breaking off just the right amount!









A little bit of glue goes a long way…









And … done! Broken crayons have never looked so good huh?! What an ingenious way to use up those abandoned crayons while giving the perfect gift to a school teacher! Now that’s economical and special. Head over to Lisa’s blog, Rainy Tuesday Mornings, to check out in detail how to make your very own crayon monograms. Thanks a bunch, Lisa, for inspiring the child in us to play with crayons all over again!

    This craft project is such a cute idea. I’m even thinking a pretty crafty kid could do this project. And, it’s economical. How do you come up with these great ideas?!
