Elmo's World: Crayon Craft #2

Hi-hi!  I'm bringing another quick tutorial from the Elmo party...

Buffet Labels

1. Gather Supplies:
- Clothespins (Walmart)
- Crayons (Dollar Tree)
- Hot glue sticks/gun

2.  Glue down the seam of the crayon paper

3. Place crayon on the clothespin 2 things to note:

 - the crayon point should be closest to the "clippie" part of the clothespin
- the crayon base should be sit on the tabletop; it will prevent the pin from tipping over

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the other side of the clothespin

5. Enjoy!

Stop at step 3 (i.e. don't double-side with crayons) and use these beauties to create a birthday photo display of your little one throughout the year (maybe a banner or a clothesline-style display of Elmo clothing for a baby shower??).  Wouldn't this also make a CUTE addition to a homework/craft area as a means to display artwork?

I LOVE making useful party decor that can have a life post-party!

  1. This is such a great idea! I love using clothespins. You'll see these make an appearance at my sister in law's baby shower this weekend. Thank you for always sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays. The elmo party looks like it was a blast!
