Crayon Organizer

I made another crayon organizer for my classroom. This time I used an old wooden picture frame from Ikea.   I had a picture frame where the mirror in the middle had fallen out.  So I spray painted the frame white with spray paint from Wal-Mart $1.50.  I applied a clear gloss coat. Then I used small screws left over from when my brother built us a computer and screwed down my small tomato sauce cans.  I also spray painted my cans with a clear gloss coat.  Very fun project!

Now I can't decide which one I prefer.... a square or in a line..... What do you think?


  1. I finally made mine! Really good idea. My kids are finally coloring and loving it!

  2. I find the middle of the cans have sharp edges what did you do for that?
