Colorful Crayon Letter

This unique gift puts old crayons to creative use in a personalized piece of art.

  • Marker
  • Tacky glue


1. Remove the wrapping from several crayons

2. Mount a sheet of beginning-writer paper on a thin piece of cardboard and trim it to fit a shadow box frame.

3. Use a pencil to sketch a letter lightly onto the paper and write the teacher's name below the letter with marker.
