DIY: How to Make a Crayon Monogram

Pin It

How adorable is this crayon monogram? Perfect to gift to a special teacher but also a really fun idea for a nursery, child’s room or play room.

It’s a very simple DIY project.

Print your letter out on a scrap piece of paper.
Arrange crayons over letter.
Cut crayons individually to length using a sharp knife and cutting board.*
Glue crayon pieces together using a glue gun.
Then glue the crayon letter to a nice piece of stiff paper.

*diy tip: When you’re making the straight cuts it helps to roll the crayon under your knife to score it all the way around, then it just snaps in the center leaving a cleaner cut. Unfortunately it doesn’t work with the slanted cuts.

Is this project something you’ll be trying? Leave a comment and let me know =)

    Yours is the nicest monogram out there in wifi land. I really liked the idea but couldn’t find a good one until I found yours. You have nice clean lines. I also like the little stamped message. That is something my son can do! Nice work.

    I love this gift idea and what to do it for my daughter’s teacher as a End of the Year/Going Away gift (we are moving in 2 weeks). I was wondering “What size frame did you use? And which font/size font did you use”?
