Crayon Monogram

Teacher Appreciation Gift




This week was teacher appreciation week & I didn't want the week to pass without making something for my daughter's teacher.

We made the same thing last year for my childrens' teachers & you can see them here.
That post also includes instructions on how to make your own.


This year I decided to do rainbow colors & to cut the crayons to fit exactly within the letter.
In the post I created last year there are two other variations on how I cut the crayons.


I like this look because I think it gives it a nice clean look.


I really wanted to do the crayons with an ombre effect using the teacher's favorite colors, but I would have had to purchase way too many boxes of crayons.
I guess I could have just made a smaller letter & used less crayons, but I like this 8" x 10" size.


Now that I've made these two years in a row, my daughter wants her own for her bedroom, so maybe I'll just get to make one ombre style for her bedroom.
I think this would be adorable in a bedroom or nursery.

  1. I love this! Just wondering how you cut your crayons to get them so smooth -especially the angled ones. You did a great job and I really like the clean cut ones best! Thanks for the tips!

    1. I used an xacto knife to cut the crayons. If they weren't smooth after the cut, I just shaved off a little more with the xacto knife. Thanks for the visit :)

    1. I used Microsoft Word on my home computer and just found a block font that I liked & printed it out.

    2. The font I used is Arial Black at about 600 size with no fill. When I printed it on my final cardstock, I printed it the same color as the paper, so it wouldn't show up as much if you saw the lines.
