Back To School Pencil Wreath Tutorial

This cute Back to School Pencil Wreath can be used for a Back to School Party or a Back to School Photo Backdrop. It was really easy to make and I’m going to show you how!

Back To School Pencil Wreath Tutorial

Here is what I used.

pencil wreath supplies

LOTS of pencils, 2 pieces of cardboard, hot glue, white, yellow and black paint.

First, I cut out a large circle from one piece of my cardboard.  BTW, I cut out my cardboard using a bowl at a stencil. I then started to place the pencils.

Its a tricky thing placing the pencils! I wanted to glue them right away and then would noticed that either they were even or I just didn’t like it.

Then this would happen. It happened quite a few times!! :/

So, eventually when I was happy with the design I actually marked each pencil so that I could put them all back on with the hot glue in the same design that I had finally decided on.

Now, I put TONS of hot glue over the pencils to glue on the top piece of cardboard.

Once the glue had dried I painted the top circle cardboard cut out. I FORGOT to take pictures of that!!! I painted the circle black, used the yellow to paint a faux ruler on the edge and used white for the letters. If you by flat or matte paint the white on black looks just like chalk. Only one layer needed!

That cute little apple my hubby made. He cut it out of card stock because I “it just needs something more”! HAHA! But seriously, that little apple was the icing!

SO cute right!?? You could make this as a gift too! Just had the teachers name, maybe something like Ms. Janet is an A+ Teacher!!

I used this wreath for a photo backdrop.

You can read about how I created that backdrop in my Back To School Photo or Party Backdrop Tutorial post!

BTW I have a post of 101 FREE Back To School printables. The cute signs and banners you see above can be found in this post.

Have you made a pencil wreath before? Or have you ever thrown a Back To School party or had a Back To School or First Day of School photo shoot?? I would love to hear about it.

Thanks for stopping by!
