Do you have 10 minutes? Then you (and the kids) can make this adorable vase!
Nothing – and I mean NOTHING – was more thrilling to me each September than that new box of Crayola crayons (64, of course). There was something about that tiered box – all the crayons still sharpened and clean – that symbolized so perfectly the start of a brand new school year. I would actually hold off using them for as long as possible, hating to ruin the perfection of those colorful rows, all neatly lined up.
So you could imagine how smitten I am with this vase . I mean, just look at it – a row of brand new crayons – forever!
All you need is a box of crayons, a can and a glue gun – easy peasy.
You may need to experiment a bit with the size of the can and the number of crayons. For this vase I used a six-ounce can (from tomato paste) and 23 crayons (which was great as I was able to purchase one box of 24). I wrapped it with a little raffia ribbon and filled it with flowers from my garden.
This would also work beautifully with colored pencils and a taller container – I may try that next!
No flowers? Fill with candies, rubber bands or paper clips instead.
Okay – am I the only one who wants to run out and buy that box of 64 – with the built-in sharpener????
And now for Babble links!
