A crayon monogram is an easy way to make a unique, meaningful gift for someone special or an adorable wall hanging for a child’s bedroom or playroom. With just a few supplies, this project comes together quickly.
I had some crazy idea to make a Christmas gift for my daughter’s preschool teacher. I’ve never made anything like this before so I wasn’t sure if it would even turn out nicely. Well, it did! And, it was super easy – much easier than it looks.
Crayon Monogram Supply List:
I finished it in about two hours – I thought it would take a lot longer. The majority of my time was spent trying to print the perfect letter “E”. If I were making a few of these at a time, I could get them done much faster. Once you get to the crayon cutting and gluing stage, it assembles very quickly.
After attempting to print an outline of a large letter “E”, I gave up and decided to draw it freehand. It was a lot easier that way…especially since the scrapbook paper I chose is basically a grid with straight lines to follow.
I lightly outlined an “E” with pencil and then arranged several crayons horizontally to make sure the height of letter was about right.
Then, I started cutting and gluing each crayon to the paper.
Once finished, I gathered up the colorful shavings left over and glued them to the border of the name plate at the bottom.
I was very happy with how this turned out – It was inexpensive and actually fun to make. Don’t be scared of the exact knife. Once you cut a few crayons, it’s easy to get the hang of it. There’s a very small learning curve.
But, best of all… Ms. “E” was surprised and very happy with her special Christmas gift!
I’m thinking this would be cute in a kid’s room or playroom too.
