First, cut a strip of paper and glue it around the top of the can. It will need to be wide enough to cover the space that the crayons won't cover on the can. IMG_8043 copy

Put hairband on the bottom part of the can. You will use it to hold the crayons in place. IMG_8050 copy

Put a strip of glue on a crayon and place it on the can, under the hairband. IMG_8053 copy

Continue gluing and placing crayons until they go all the way round the can.
