TUTORIAL:

How to make a Christmas Wreath

 Put a dab of hot glue on the end of the pencils and shove them into wreath at varying depths.  It doesn’t matter if the eraser comes through to the center of the wreath because you are covering the hole with your chalkboard later.

Continue all the way around the wreath.

Make a Chalkboard Wreath

Paint your cardboard with chalkboard paint and let dry.  I did 2 coats, sanding lightly between.
