Back to School Crayon Banner

This is a great banner to greet your kids with on the first day of school whether you’re a parent or a teacher you can use it at home, in the classroom or at a party.

If you are new here stop by and check out our other Back to School and Fall crafts, recipes and decor!

Crayons Banner

You will need:

Hot Glue

clothes pins



I used two different size crayons and made a pattern with them. My 5 year loved that, he is really into patterns right now.  Glue crayons on pins and once it’s dry, pin them on to ribbon!

Wondering what to do with your crayons when you are done?  I am sharing over at Kid Activities Blog: Crayon Magnets and Teacher gifts.

    This is such a cute idea. You will be able to use the crayon on clothes pins over and over again.

    This is so cute. Love the crayons on clothespins. Thinking magnets for a teacher gift made the same way. Love it.
