Kick off the next school year with a back to school themed wreath using school supplies that is perfect for a homework station or as a gift to your child’s new teacher this year.

I can’t believe I am even about to say this, but it really will be back to school time before we even know it. NO!!!! Summer days are just too much fun with all the sunshine, vacations, lounging poolside, and more. But it’s coming whether we like it or not which is why I am just going to embrace it at this point and create a back to school themed wreath.
What a precious idea to use to decorate a homework station, maybe like this one, or a study/desk area in your child’s room. It’s even great to give as a gift to your child’s new teacher to decorate their classroom door with. I even used school supplies for most of the materials which you can find very inexpensive this time of year. *Now stay tuned because below I have even more wreath ideas from several friends of mine as part of 12 Months of Wreaths.
- Styrofoam wreath
- Floral pins
- Notebook paper
- Scrabble pieces
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Miniature chalkboard
- Chalk marker
- Wreath hanger
First your paper should be folded vertically twice until it is only about 2″ wide as shown in image above. Wrap the paper around the wreath and secure in place using a floral pin. *You could also hot glue the paper in place, but the pins make it so much easier and faster.
Hot glue the crayons to the bottom of the wreath using as many crayons as you prefer.
Hot glue the scrabble pieces to spell “ABC” or any other phrase you like.
Hang ribbon at the middle of the wreath as a banner and place under the floral pins on the back to secure in place.
Write a phrase on the miniature chalkboard using the chalk marker and attach to the back of the wreath under a floral pin.
Wrap ribbon around the top of the wreath for more color and decoration. Tie one piece of ribbon longer to allow for space to hang the wreath.
And that’s all there is to it. This is definitely a project that your kids could join in on with a little help and make together.
Even if we dread the school year, we mine as well embrace it and enjoy every minute that we can. (At least that’s what I’m telling myself so I don’t cry. 😉 )
Now for even more…several of my friends are also sharing their wreath ideas as part of 12 Months of Wreaths. Be sure to check out their loveliness below and follow their blogs as well.
