Ah, back-to-school…and so it all begins. I decided to make a wreath to fit the theme going on in our home lately. It seems as if Kimberly and I have a DIY wreath theme going on here, here, here, and here! For those who live in the SouthBay, especially Manhattan Beach, have you ever noticed how many wreaths on displayed on people’s doors? I see them everywhere all year-long! I mainly see shells, to go with the beach city vibe, but I like to change things up and be festive.
This DIY project is super simple. It is also absolutely adorable, if I do say so myself! My sister-in-law, Leyla came to visit and we caught up on our latest gossip while getting our craft on! We made this one for my nephew who will be starting preschool this year. You can read more about my adorable nephew here.
Use a 9″ styrofoam ring (found mine at Michael’s)
Wrap it in fabric. I found it easier to cut the fabric into strips and then wrap and glue it. Another alternative would be to spray paint it.
Hot glue gun crayons to the wreath.
Bedazzle your wreath with anything school related. Again, I found these cute wooden pieces at Michael’s for cents. I did spray pain the apple with chalkboard spray pain I had on hand. You can personalize it with the child’s name, school name, and grade. Or this would make for an adorable teacher’s gift!
