Using your paper punch, punch a hole in the 10 inch cake round about a 1/2" form the outer edge of the cake round.

Feed your pipe cleaner through the hole you just punched. And twist it both above and below the hole. This loop will be used to hang the wreath on the wall.

Glue your 6" Cake round in the center of the 10" cake round.

Start by gluing a crayon at each of the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions on the cake round. But the flat end of the crayon up to the inside round to ensure even spacing. Now fill in between the first four you glued down, gluing each one at a slight angle. Once you filled them in and if there is a slight gap that you can't quite fit a crayon into, try trimming the crayon with a pair of scissors to fit it.

Start adding the second row, by placing them in between the first row. Try pulling the back of the crayon back about 3/8" to 1/2" back to stagger them. Go all the way around.

For the third layer, we recommend you pull them back the same distance as you did the second row.

Now glue the CD in the center of the wreath, on top of the third row that you just completed.

Now do a row on top of the CD with the pointy ends facing inward, and finally another with the pointy ends out.

Wedge pointed ends inward in between the last row.

    This would be adorable on an art teacher's classroom door, but I would be afraid it would melt on my front East-facing steel front door at home. You could use different colors for different seasons.

    I hope you do not hang this wreath in a warm to sunny spot, as the crayons will melt and cause extensive staining to your door, wall, carpets, furniture, etc. A sunroom is one of the worst rooms to hang this wreath.
