back to school isn't just for school.

being the teacher i am, i have spent most (if not all) of my summer making things, organizing, and planning for the upcoming school year.

my absolute favorite time of year has arrived. it's not the back to school part i get excited for (even though i am quite excited for this coming year), it's the school supply shopping! it seriously, cannot get any better than school supplies!

i decided to take the back to school theme (one of my favorites) to my house decor.

i'm obsessed with wreaths, so i made one for my house.

(the apple and ruler are just extra accessories courtesy of picnik. i don't wanna any creepos coming to my house.)

(I spy a fat white fluffy cat. Can you?)

*cover board with chalkboard contact paper (you can find tons on
*treat chalkboard paper by covering it with chalk and erasing it!
*begin hot gluing your pencils, or colored pencils, or crayons, or markers (you get the point) to your board. i used metal cutters to cut the small pieces of pencils and to snip the erasers off to fill in the tiny spots.
*attach ribbon and viola!

happy back to school supply shopping!

Thirty Hand Made Days


  1. So cute! I would love for you to stop by DIY Home Sweet Home today and link up your wreath and any other projects you would like to share. Happy Monday!!

  2. Shopping for school supplies is my favorite thing too! Everything smells like rubber and turpentine. It's awesome.


I love comments just as much as Diet Coke.
