back to school

I gotta go back, back, back to school again
You won't find me 'til the clock strikes three
I'm gonna be there 'til then
I gotta go back, back, back to school again
Whoa, whoa, I gotta go, back to school again
{Four Tops, Grease 2}


I was really in the "back-to-school" mood this past week, so when I created my Back-to-School artwork, I couldn't just stop there and had to make the wreath!  You might remember the "grass" wreath that took blogland by storm in the Spring...


Of course, I had to make one, too!  Then, I flipped it over and made a dino version for Chase's dino party.


Well, I'm not one to throw away, so I just took the dinosaurs off, and gussied it up for school!

Supplies needed:

  • "grass" wreath
  • scrapbook paper
  • scissors
  • stickers
  • bakers twine
  • pencils
  • ribbon
  • pins
  • glue dots
First, cut small triangles out of your scrapbook paper for the banner.  Then put the stickers on there to spell out "Back To School".

Next, string them on to your bakers twine and glue dot them into place.  Place the banner on your wreath and secure with pins.

Finally, to add a little somethin' somethin', grab a couple of pencils and bind them with your ribbon and secure to wreath.  Viola! You've got yourself the cutest back to school wreath!

I hope you guys are inspired to make your own Back to School wreaths, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
