Pumpkin Crayons


Fall is finally here & I'm in full force holiday craft mode! Woot!
My Halloween candy idea came to a screeching halt when I discovered my daughters new school is sugar-free!  

 While I've been racking my brain for a sugar-free classroom treat, my lil gal lost her first tooth last night. Eek! I told her she had the perfect pumpkin smile & then an idea dawned on me...
Boxes of crayons disguised as pumpkins!

Sugar-free & what kid doesn't love crayons? A win-win to me :)

 Five made and nineteen (!!!) more to go!

What you'll need:
Box of crayons
Scrapbook paper
Glue stick
Paper punches (1-hole, circle & scallop)
Bakers twine (or make your own here)

Two of the scrapbook papers I used are available to download for free:
Pumpkin face template
Get the adorable gift tag & other Halloween free printables here!

 Happy Halloween my pretties!

  10. What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing! I think it's a good idea for the schools to be more health conscious, but I'm sure the kids don't think so. :)
