the top and bottom, drilling holes on both sides for middle
crayons and one side only for end crayons.
2. Paint the end slats with peach and blue. Paint the middle
slats with pink and purple.
3. Cut the top of the crayon shapes from orange, red, purple
and blue craft foam, using scissors. Cut two ¼”
x 12” strips from black craft foam, using one of the
decorative edge scissors. Cut four 2 ¼” x 3 ¼”

4. Glue the crayon tops to the top back of the same color
pastel wood slat. Cut the black strips the same width as the
wood slats and glue across the top and bottom. Glue the black
rectangles to the wood slats, leaving room underneath for
writing a name. Glue photos to the black rectangles.
5. Write a name under each photo. Wrap a small piece of tape

the crayons together, inserting pieces of cord through the
holes, knotting the ends together in the back. Trim the cord
ends past the knots.
